The brief required the construction of a single family house on a site within a saturated residential quarter in the outskirts of Reykjavik. The area is located on the Arnarnes peninsula of Gardabaer a town of 8,000 inhabitants some 10 km from the capital Reykjavik. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe site is facing south to the Blikanes St. with a limited view to the sea across the presidential residence Bessastaðir. The composition is two basic boxes layed out as to create an area of quietness within the complex. The void assimilates adjacent spaces and is generated with bare walls and a flow of indirect daylight from a 6 meters long sky window facing north. The two boxes are clusters of containers and house the living wing to the street and thr sleeping wing set to the back of the site. The atmosphere throughout the house is primarily obtained by the emptyness between the two boxes and the movements from container to container through that space. The flow of spaces is further enhanced by the continuous surfaces attained by the layering of openings contra massive heavy barriers. Frameless openings encourage views from one space to another. The entrance is a two story high space linked directly to the void connecting the two volumens. Kitchen, dining and living is a one and a half story high space with a huge corner window as the focus point capturing the view to the sea. The private wing is two story high housing the bedrooms and sanitarie spaces on the upper floor and a service and house keeper quarter on the lover one.

This fortress plays further more the role of guiding the entrance path from the street to the main entrance.

The Affordable Care Act stipulates that health insurance provided by employers must include birth control as a preventative service at no cost. The Trump administration sought to expand the moral and religious exemptions to that mandate. This is the third time the high court has ruled on the issue. The Supreme Court ruled that civil courts cannot be involved in employment discrimination suits brought against religious organizations where the employee served a religious function. The decision expands upon a ruling from 2012, in which the court said that religious organizations are granted a “ministerial exception” from employment discrimination lawsuits. BREAKING: #SCOTUS decided against reproductive freedom today in 𝘛𝘳𝘶𝘮𝘱 𝘷. 𝘗𝘦𝘯𝘯𝘴𝘺𝘭𝘷𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘢. They ruled that virtually any employer can deny their employees health insurance coverage of birth control just because they have personal objections. #HandsOffMyBC pic.twitter.com/YxePn1zrPO— NARAL (@NARAL) July 8, 2020 (Washington, DC) — The Supreme Court is backing a Trump Administration plan to help companies deny giving their workers free birth control.The seven-to-two ruling means up to 126-thousand women in this country may lose birth control coverage. The High Court ruled publicly-traded companies and large universities could claim a religious objection to providing the coverage. Even those without a moral objection are now exempt from the requirement. The ruling helps President Trump deliver on a campaign promise to roll back coverage provided in Obamacare.
