The most prominent feature of Casa G is its slanted and curved wooden wall that bounds the residence’s southeast. The monolithic structure is meant by Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor to serve as a mediator between the north view of the Icelandic mountains and the southern view of the nearby coastline and islands. Similar large, bold forms define the interior of Casa G, such as the sculptural stairs of Icelandic bluestone and the many overhead lights that wash the walls in a soft, warm glow. To further highlight the sheer size of the house, the living room is a two-story space, which is overlooked by an interior parapet of glass. The cool palette and use of stone accentuates the house’s geographic placement in the Nordic.
