By now, it’s probably apparent that we have a soft spot for outstanding architecture. We have seen some incredible examples lately, and today we get a look at a stunning design from Mahmoud Sherif. Dubbed the Director House, this monolithic design sits on the rugged coast of southern Iceland. The home takes on a brutalist aesthetic, which seems to rise from a rocky cliff overlooking Reynisfjara beach.
The home boasts a concrete shell that seamlessly becomes a part of the intense landscape. The home’s rugged and unique exterior is contrasted by a clean, minimal, and contemporary interior. The Director House’s interior features exposed cement throughout that features a cave-like appeal.
The living spaces are accented by bright LED lights, creeping vines, and more. The home also features a sculpted copper staircase that helps to break up the home’s palette. These details provide unique accents throughout, adding a touch of contrast to the interior along the way. The home is nothing short of impressive.
Take a closer look at the Director House in the images below and find out more about the design from Mahmoud Sherif. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more modern architecture and contemporary design coming soon.
