Brekkuskógur Cottages are designed by Arkibullan Architects, for the BHM Icelandic Academic Association. The entrance is under a porch towards the north, whereas towards the south lies the veranda with a hot tub and outside dining area. Kitchen, dining area and living room merge together to provide the houseguests with simutaneous views of the scenic landscape in all directions. A corridor covered in bookshelves from floor to ceiling leads to the bedrooms and the bathroom.
Building materials are locally sourced and natural. The concrete and timber construction is untreated on the outside, and the roofs have been planted with the local flora. Inside timber walls are clad with birch plywood, whereas the concrete walls are either untreated or painted in a palette of the local natural colours.
