The Nordic house

THE NORDIC HOUSE

Iceland maintains strong ties to other Nordic countries, and the center of this cooperation is the Nordic House in Reykjavik.
With its marine blue roof the Nordic house is a cultural, architectural and gastronomic jewel in the heart of Reykjavik. It is an icon of Nordic aesthetics, designed by the Finnish mastermind Alvar Aalto.
The Nordic House library has a unique position in Iceland with its focus on Nordic literature, offering material in seven Nordic languages, art, and culture.
In addition, there is a shop for Nordic design and food products, exhibition space and auditoriums. The house also features an acclaimed restaurant serving New Nordic food. Restaurant Dill is run by Chef Gunnar Karl Gíslason, captain of the Icelandic culinary team, and Ólafur Örn Ólafsson, president of the Icelandic sommelier association.
The Nordic House is a lively house with cultural events every day; concerts, art exhibitions, seminars, theater and more. You can even become so lucky to meet Alvar Aalto himself (as portrayed by an actor). Please find information about current events at: www.nordichouse.is
So have a memorable time with art, music, literature, amazing performances, and fantastic food. The Nordic House nourishes both body and soul and is a forum for creativity, a house for you!
