Casa G By Gudmundur Jonsson Architects

Nov 6, 2018

Category: Living

Iceland is an engrossing environment full of vast, rolling plains, endless waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, and an illustrious reputation as an otherworldly landscape seemingly untouched by humanity. Icelandic architect Gudmundur Jonsson has a long-standing connection to the wildland — and Casa G, a gorgeous dwelling of concrete and glass, is his newest contribution to the untamed environment.

The home stands alone in an outcrop somewhere between the ocean and mountains, sporting a linear concrete design that gives way to a single, curved wooden wall. The interior, which is adorned by slate stone flooring and cabinets, mirrors the surrounding volcanic landscape. The living area of the dwelling utilizes a dramatic pairing of wood and glass, eventually leading to the second floor via an immaculate Icelandic bluestone staircase. Open-ended north and south facing windows span the entire two stories of the home, helping to maximize views of the surrounding landscape.
