Located in the middle of Iceland’s famed Golden Circle Route, about an hour and a half ride from Reykjavik, the Pyramid Cottage House is an unconventional holiday retreat. The project consists of two pyramid-shaped volumes connected by a single-level entrance hall.
According to the owners’ description, the property was built to reflect the Icelandic landscape and complement the small vegetation of moss and trees in the old lava-field. One of the structures accommodates an open-plan living room, which combines the kitchen, lounger and dining table. Natural light is allowed inside through triangle-shaped windows, which give an interesting 3D effect to the spaces.
The second pyramid hosts the sleeping areas, with three small bedrooms designed on the first level. The magic happens when you climb the stairs and reach the top of the structure, enclosed in glass. It is here that you can enjoy a panoramic view of the surroundings and the Northern Lights. The lovely wooden deck with minimalist furniture acts as an open invite to witness fresh summer mornings in Iceland. [Photographs courtesy of airbnb]
