About the project

This is a place to stop. A place to take a breath, sit down and take shelter from the wilderness that surrounds you.

Replenish and enjoy a break before you head back out on your trek. Put your jacket back on and tie up your laces. Be brave and step back out in to nature. Its brutal beauty awaits you.

The building appears as a reflection of its surroundings; a mirror box that floats ever so slightly above the rugged terrain below. t is almost invisible, its presence changes with the ethereal weather that consumes Iceland. Just beyond the building, rising out of the ground, is a slender tower of metal. It acts as a beacon, guiding visitors through all manner of weather conditions to the site. Its simplicity ensures that the landscape endures as the dominant attraction of the site.
