The Nordic House, Torshavn

4.1
Admire the Scandinavian architecture at The Nordic House, considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the Nordic region. With a mission to promote the local history and culture, the institution was established in 1983 under the supervision of the Nordic Council of Ministers. Designed by architect Ola Steen, the deep green building resembles a dragon on the outside, matching the reptilian design of the spacious interior hall. Sit back at the onsite cafe and soak in the playful atmosphere of the architectural elements, whose materials were sourced almost exclusively from the Faroe Islands.

  • With grasslands on the roof we thought it was for sheep but it is a very important thermal insulator and needs a whole technique for that grassland and land to be left there The interior was also a very interesting visit

  • A wonderful house where creative thoughts get wings and can fly high and far. A Nordic house in the true sense. Icelandic & Norwegian architect, Wood from Sweden, slate flooring from Norway, furniture from Alvar Aalto (Finland), steel and glass from Denmark and Faroese grass roof construction on the ceiling. The house was both accessible and beautiful. Well worth a visit!
