Hof – a house in Iceland


Iceland is a country with amazing nature and although the climate is cold the nature is beautiful all year long. Because the country has very few inhabitants compared to other places the houses usually are quite isolated and peaceful. Hof is one of those houses and it is situated in the Skakafjördur fjord, less than 100km from the Arctic Circle.

Due to the grass on the roof and the massive concrete walls the house is insulated and thermally stable.Geothermal water is used for the floor heating and radiators as well as for all domestic use. Electricity is made from hydroelectric and geothermal sources.

Well…I can say that this is a dream house and I would love to live there!
