Exploring Iceland with the Abandoned Houses Project 

Dwarfed by the powerful landscapes, the abandoned farm houses of Iceland are easy to overlook among the mountains and fjords. Eyðibýli — a project to document these abandoned homes — was started in 2011 to help save these ruins from obscurity. 

The nonprofit’s mission is to ”to research and register the magnitude and cultural importance of every abandoned farm and other deserted residences in the rural areas of Iceland.” They started in the south of the county and most recently covered the northwest in a journey to photograph these abandoned houses and interview locals about the areas’ heritage.

The results of this research are published in a series of publications called Eyðibýli á Íslandi. The fourth and fifth books in the series, which are rich with haunting photographs of the homes in the sweeping settings, were published in 2013. The main organizations behind Eyðibýli are R3-Consultancy, Gláma-Kím architects, and the Stapi Geology Consultancy, with collaborators including engineering, architecture, and archaeology students at the Icelandic Academy of the Arts, the University of Iceland, and Institute of Archaeology, as well as the Cultural Heritage Agency of Iceland and the National Archives of Iceland.

Summer houses, Lysekil, Sweden by Mats Fahlander | via

The two summer houses are located between two Fjords on the Swedish, northern westcoast. The site is surrounded by a nationalpark, the nature characterised by rounded rocks and leaning trees, bent of an always existing wind. Other houses in the area are mainly from the -50s and are rather in a summerhouse typology than the traditional sort for the area.

The house on one of the highets points in thea area was designed for one of the sons in a large family, his part of the families own household and a place for guesting friends. The other, smaller house was built for his parents. Together wit the existing house tthey form a group facing west and the sea.

The ground was left untouched so the houses floats above the rocks. Also above the rocks is it possible to walk around the houses on outdoor bridges and platforms, hanged from the facade. The contrast between the sometimes rough climate and the easy summerlife was the guide to the design of the buildings. A construction of timber is covered with nearly maintenance free materials. Painted parts are white according to the tradition of the coast.
