Langitangi Country House / Krads

August 20, 2019 Paula Pintos 0

This country house in the south-western part of Iceland is one of the first projects by KRADS. Over the past 10 years it is gradually being worked on every time the owners, who live abroad, are in Iceland. The main focus in the design of the housewas to create a careful and functional engagement with the dramatic and beautiful topography of the site.  Partly submerged in the steep terrain of Langitangi (“Long-Peninsula”), the elongated building’s horizontal figure presents itself in the landscape as a geometrically accentuated topographic contour line.The building’s placement on the peninsula was specifically chosen in order to create a varied dialogue between the structure and it’s context.The rough concrete and the low, cantileveringroof endure the windswept site, while sheltering in- and outdoor spaces from the barren landscape.

A gentle recluse, this six bedroom lodge nestles in the cool wooded hills of NanShan high above the heat of busy Chongqing City. The project, initiated by a group of Chongqing residents, builds on the rising demand for casual ‘MingSu’ culture and ‘slow life’ which is expanding as counterpoint to the Chinese 24/7 work pattern in fast-growing cities.
