This tiny house is situated in a black sand desert in Iceland,
half way between the two glaciers Mýrdalsjökul and Vatnajökull.
This simple service house serves travellers, with lavatories, a
washing machine, a dryer and a bike stand for repairs. These are
standard facilities in such a building but what makes this unit
different from other similar service units, is that this otherwise
straight forward program is intertwined with another unrelated
program. A view point is situated on the roof of the building,
giving travellers a unique opportunity to tower over the ground
giving a different perspective to the stunning 360°surrounding
views.
This program overlapping makes this a unique project in its own
right.
