Ágúst Skorri Sigurðsson is one of the BA-Architecture graduates 2014 of the Icelandic Academy of the Arts.


According to the architect,

If a young couple gets a chance to build a house, where should the priority be set for it to be their dream house? The house serves as a core for the future of the clients, that retains its value if the house should expand or change in the course of their lives.


The threshold between minimalism and luxury is challenged by offering multiple functions and areas that are essential for a dream house while elements that are of less importance today were left out. The areas created serve the clients today and keep their importance in the future.


The house is divided into two storeys, the upper one in street level and the lower one in level with the garden. The upper floor is aimed for social activities and passing of free time with a kitchen, dining room and a sitting area along with a toilet. The floor has access to the balcony and is accessible for disabled people. The lower floor is aimed more at the inhabitants themselves and houses a drawing room that opens up to the garden, a bathroom, laundry- and storage room and the master bedroom.
