TINY SPACES: ICELAND continues this February with Episode Three: Water Tower

Escape the chaos of daily life with TINY SPACES: ICELAND – a series where less is more and a connection to nature is vital. 

Enter a water tower converted into a family home; explore a rejuvenated barn given a new life by a local artist; and look back in time through the remarkable Viking-inspired turf houses of Iceland. 

  • Episode Three: Water Tower (15 mins) Australia 2023 (Available 6 February)

A young couple with a passion for minimalism take on a huge challenge when they decide to convert a disused water tower into a modern home for their growing family.  With exceptional views from the top floor, the Water Tower is surrounded by lava fields, mountains and a stunning coastline.

  • Episode Four: Converted Barn (15 mins) Australia 2023 (Available 13 February)

After many years of searching for a sanctuary that could function as both a workspace and family home, artist Gudrun Kristjansdottir discovered a derelict barn (built in 1937) on the stunning West Coast of Iceland. Told by many that she should tear the existing structure down, Gudrun enlisted the architects at Studio Bua to help bring a new era of life to this abandoned space. 

  • Episode Five: Turf Houses (15 mins) Australia 2023 (Available 20 February)

When the Norwegian Vikings settled in Iceland, they brought with them a tradition of building out of the earth, using natural materials such as wood, uncut stone, and soil. Known as Turf Houses, these structures became the remarkable vernacular architecture of Iceland. Today, contemporary architects are turning to traditional turf building methods for inspiration and choosing to use them in modern Tiny Spaces.


A documentary covering the life and work of Aldo Rossi, the first Italian architect to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize. Centred around the exhibition “Aldo Rossi Design 1960-1997” at Milan’s Museo del Novecento, ALDO ROSSI DESIGN features never before seen drawings, designs, prototypes, furniture, and objects, and explores Rossi’s legacy in the history of design and his relationship with industry and experts.
