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 possibility of becoming a unique mix of movie industry, experimental residential units, co-living, business and leasure.



On site today are big scaled industrial buildings, some used for a movie production studios.
The plan is for Gufunes to become a versatile and different neighbourhood creating a dense urban structure enveloped in natural areas with great access to recreational activities.

Information

Expected program
The site is a harbor site and would be well suited for health related activities, such as a steam bath, sea swimming facilities and hot tubs linked to hospitality industry or other programming the teams feel suitable. This kind of programming has proved to be very successful in Iceland, both for locals as well as visitors, using the geothermal heat and closeness to nature as an attraction. The view from the pier is fantastic and programming on the site should make the most of it.

Plot area
The total size of the plot is 4928m2 and the allowance is to build a service building 1628m2 other than residential.
