Casa G by Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

It's not easy being a G! Right, Ken? Dolls constantly chasing you and trying to pretend they know you. Stealing hearts probably gets tiring? Barbie sympathizes... the chasing gets old. As she grows weary of the many chasing Kens who lack class and gravity in her line. Although tiring she does try to be careful with the hearts of others and return them as they are given. Needless to mention G recognizes G skills and a Dreamhouse made for a G can't be a bad thing! How about it Ken? ;)

Casa G by Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

“The concept of Casa G is based on reading and feedback to the landscape it exists on. The characteristic landscape situation and view differences distinctively in each direction. Towards south the view to the sea and islands, towards north the characteristic triangular mountain, towards east the glacier and towards west the river and canyon.”

“Those elements are the creator of the project, the transitions between the landscape views giving the entrance from the north and the curved plan giving a vitalized focus towards the seaside in south. When turning back the north view towards the mountain is as well enhanced with the widening view due to the fan-shape of the tilting wooden wall, being a mediator between the northern and southern landscape characteristic.”

Would you love a place like Casa G?

Barbie thinks you might!
