‘The Director’ Is A Towering Brutalist Cliff Dwelling On Iceland’s Black Coast

There’s no shortage of seaside homes, especially when you’re willing to dip your toes into the vast, unexplored waters of conceptual architecture. While it’s certain that you’ll find a handful of these intimate dwellings on the sunny, sandy beaches of some faraway land, Mahmoud Sherif has taken the path less traveled with “The Director Will Be Here Shortly” — an oddly-named brutalist structure located on the southern coast of Iceland.

“The Director” trades the embrace of warm earthen sand for the cold, volcanic remains of Reyinsfijara, complementing its shadowy hues, ice-cold waters, and abnormal rock formations. Set atop an outcrop of tiered stone, this similarly-styled structure acts as an extension to its surroundings, taking on an angular and easily-identifiable persona that looks to be carved from the face itself. After traveling through the home’s labyrinthian corridors, denizens will be gifted with an impeccably-designed interior space, showered in cold Icelandic light, thanks to a series of openings in its ceiling. A common area, complete with simplistic seating and flowing foliage, acts as the centerpiece of the dystopian dwelling, providing ample space for inhabitants.
