Did you notice that The New York Times recently covered the beautiful Hof residence, designed by Steve Christer and Margret Hardardottir of Studio Granda?

 

Located up North in Hofsós, Skagafjördur, Hof is the home of film director Baltasar Kormakur and his wife Lilja Palmadóttir, whose vision for the house, designed between 2003 and 2005 and completed in 2007, was “a modern Icelandic house, if there is such a thing”.

 

With clean lines, sharp angles and understated opulence, the house features a grass rooftop in the spirit of the ancient turf houses, fantastic views over the nearby fjord and the Drangey island, cod fish lamps by Dögg Gudmundsdóttir and Fanney Antonsdóttir as well as stone from the nearby Goddalafjall mountain.

For the entire article and beautiful photos by Baldur Kristjáns, take a look at the original write-up here.
