Arkthing design : Icelandic Opera International architectural competition win
Arkitema and Arkthing wins the international architectural competition for The Icelandic Opera – The national opera in Iceland aquires a new shining opera house with views to elf hill and the surrounding town.
When building in Iceland up to the elf hill Borgarholt it demands a special in depth understanding of Iceland’s history. A completely new opera house for the Icelandic national opera deserves a building with presence and grace, a new cultural landmark for Reykjavik. Arkitema and Arkthing’s winning proposal takes its concept based on these premises and has created a building both to the Opera, the elves, the capital’s residents and the town of Kopavogur in Reykjavik.
