Tiny House Situated in a Black Sand Desert in Iceland, Halfway Between Two Glaciers

Laufskálavarða by STASS Architects

This tiny house is situated in a black sand desert in Iceland, halfway between the two glaciers Mýrdalsjökul and Vatnajökull.

This simple service house serves travelers with lavatories, a washing machine, a dryer, and a bike stand for repairs. These are standard facilities in such a building, but this unit is different from other similar service units because this otherwise straightforward program is intertwined with another unrelated program.


A viewpoint is situated on the roof of the building, giving travelers 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.
