A performative architecture and art project at Sunnuhvoll farm, North Iceland. An adaptive reuse strategy honors the originality of the farmhouses that are expanded with experimental art and social activities informed by memories, craftsmanship, knowledge, landscapes, and stories of the past. The overall creative approach draws inspiration from the way people connect and relate to the site and surrounding area on the bank of Skjálfandi glacial river, a step from the Icelandic highlands. Programmatic exploration has ranged from literary gatherings, ceramic workshops, lectures, raves, hiking, fishing, skiing, aroma workshops, and microbrewery experiments with local herbs. Since 2019 annual public concerts have been held at Sunnuhvoll‘s large barn. When nurtured, creation has no limits in this place full of opportunities.
