Description by architect: A mid 1960´s villa by architect Guðmundur Kr. Kristinsson needed renovation and repair. The original house was a prime example of late modern architecture in Reykjavik. The project encompassed exterior renovations and retrofitting executed with respect to the high quality typical of Guðmundur´s design.

The interior was completely renovated with small additions to the family wing of the house. Owners wished for an understated and refined interior which would act as neutral background to their art collection of modern Icelandic artists.
