This tiny house by STASS Architects is situated in a black sand desert in Laufskálavarða, Iceland, halfway 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 straightforward program is intertwined with another unrelated one. 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.
