Iceland Trekking Cabins Architecture Competition

Iceland Trekking Cabins, Iceland

Work with Us



The Iceland Trekking Cabins architecture competition, held in collaboration with CDS NORD Property Developers, aimed to construct a series of trekking cabins along some of Iceland’s renowned trekking routes. Designers were challenged to create an innovative and resilient cabin design that could be replicated on various terrains and enhance the accessibility to the country’s most remote areas.  

Project Summary

Iceland’s trekking routes are home to pristine terrain of tundra, glaciers, hot springs, fjords, highlands, volcanoes and lava fields which make it an ideal destination for adventure and exploration. The Nadi Group’s design, titled Vigvisir Trekking Cabins, celebrate the Icelandic tradition of humility by preserving the integrity of the untouched landscape. The cabins are embedded subtlety along the trekking trails, just out of view from the everyday experience. When the climatic conditions become potentially dangerous for the trekkers; the cabins are revealed through a beacon of light and smoke. Each beacon acts as signal of hope, a warning and a guide for those at threat in the landscape.
