Architecture Planning Permission in Iceland – design by WilkinsonEyre, Architects

24 July 2019

Aldin Biodomes

Design: WilkinsonEyre

Location: Reykjavik, Iceland

WilkinsonEyre granted planning permission for Landmark Biodome project in Iceland

Aldin Biodomes Reykjavik

Planning permission has been granted for a major biodome complex in the Reykjavik region designed by WilkinsonEyre, working alongside a talented local design team.

Aldin Biodomes Reykjavik

The Aldin Biodomes consist of a Main Nature Dome & Tropical Dome, showcasing exotic plants from other environments, and the Farm Lab, an educational environment on local food production. Alongside a rich tropical environment, the Main Nature Dome incorporates a multi-functional space and information area, specialty restaurant, visitors’ shop and marketplace for Icelandic products. Designed to be an exemplar in sustainability, the domes will be heated using the region’s abundant geothermal energy.

Situated on the edge of the outdoor recreational area Elliðaárdalur, the project will provide a new gateway to the largest green area close to the Icelandic capital. Located on a hilly ridge, the development will be an elegant addition to the city skyline, as well as offering dramatic views to the Elliðaárdalur Valley and the city of Reykjavik. The project’s north-west orientation will guarantee views of Iceland’s midnight sunsets during the long summer days and the Northern Lights during the dark winters. It will provide local people and visitors with a year-round tropical oasis and gathering point, helping to boost wellbeing during the region’s dark winter months.

WilkinsonEyre was appointed because of its extensive experience in comparable projects around the world including the Davies Alpine House at Kew’s Royal Botanic Gardens; the National Centre for Horticultural Science and Learning in Surrey for the Royal Horticultural Society; and Gardens by the Bay, one of the world’s most ambitious landmark destinations of recent years, featuring the largest climate-controlled glasshouses in existence.
