House of the Snowbird
Vesturgata 5, Reykjavík 101, +354 698 2772
WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT ... ? ... everything! We put our heart into every detail in our preciously preserved historic house. Located in the old town of Reykjavik, this iconic house was built the year 1898 by the beloved Icelandic poet Einar Ben. The house was is imported by ship from Norway and one can see signs of that here and there in the house, such as markings on the beams. The house is owned by a family of artists who have left their mark on its every detail. The interior style is an interesting fusion of old Scandinavia and raw modern art. The house is filled with artwork, paintings, photographs and ceramics by its owners which make it very unique. The location is fantastic, with a view over the streets of the old town, surrounded by museums, galleries, cafés, restaurants and the old harbour. If you are into the unusual and want to experience an artistic side of Reykjavík, then this is your place.
