Designed by Studio Puisto and visualized by CYLIND, the Kambanes House is a remote retreat in the Iceland countryside. The dwelling balances the rugged landscape with a pair of sleek, L-shaped forms. Its lower level is clad in a stone-like brick while the upper story sports a wooden slat facade. The unique stacking of the two volumes creates a sheltered inner courtyard with a rock garden and a hot tub overlooking the sea. For the interior, large glazed inserts afford expansive views of both the coast and the pastures for the living spaces.
