Reykjavík - Proposed sites


Gufunes is a new development zone in Reykjavík. The proposed site is a former industrial site, mostly on landfill, now in the process of becoming a hub for the creative arts. Situated on the coastline facing east and bordered by green areas this site has all the possibilities of becoming a unique melting pot of a center for the movie industry, experimental residential units, co-living, business and leisure.


This 2.853m² plot is characterized by two landmarks, a 40-meter tall concrete silos which form a part of a 1.641 m² industrial complex which used to house a cement factory. The complex also includes a packing station and a dispensary. It is an important landmark seen from multiple locations in the city, perfect reminder of the past role of this neighborhood as an industrial area and a gateway into the new future urban area of Bryggjuhverfi West.
