Located two hours drive from Reykjavik, the Árborg House stands on a hill above the glacial valley of Hvita river. Its exteriors are clad in long lasting hardwearing concrete with vertical lines and mixed with gravel from the river below. The interiors, however, are minimal yet warm and covered with local teak boards that hide plenty of storage spaces.

The living, cooking and sleeping areas are all arranged in one long, continuous space with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the stunning surroundings. The wood continues outside as a terrace featuring an infinity pool with a circular hot tub that has pebbles from the local river on its floor. And the teak outside, which is exposed to the elements, is intended to weather to a color grade that will match the fluffy Icelandic moss.
