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.
