The Nordic House (Est. 1968) is a cultural institution and exhibition space in Reykjavík which aims to nurture cultural connectivity between Iceland and Scandinavia.

Visit this Scandinavia-inspired house on a self drive tour in Iceland.

The man responsible for the Nordic House's impressive architect is Finnish modernist designer, Alvar Aalto. The building is an excellent example of the architect's signature designs; white tiling, wood panelling, organically sculpted walls and ceilings and even his own inner-furnishings. Of particular note is the Nordic House's roof, an aquamarine ridge inspired by the building's mountainous backdrop. 

Amongst the Nordic House's many contemporary features, visitors will find a large library boasting over 30,000 books in a variety of Nordic languages, as well as a range of Ebooks, DVDs, magazines and artwork. Those visiting the library will also observe more of Alvar's excellent architectural features. There is also a shop offering the latest in Nordic design, and a restaurant serving locally produced food in a Modern Nordic style. 

As previously mentioned, the Nordic Houses also serves as an exhibition space and venue for numerous events throughout the calendar year. Amongst the largest events include Reykjavik International Film Festival and The Nordic Fashion Biennale.
