Built in a Nordic tradition, the Nordic House may well look as an enchanting hill of elves. The building is made of material from all the Nordic countries, so when you enter the house, you step on Norwegian stones and the chairs that you sit in are from Finland. The wooden panels give you a feeling of deep Swedish forests, the glass and steel constructions come from Denmark, and above it all hangs the Icelandic roof construction. Last, but not least, the grass on the roof is as Faroese as it is green.
This is the Nordic House of the Faroe Islands – a versatile house that is the perfect venue for a large variety of different events. They even have a great café and a large selection of Nordic newspapers.
Conference & Meeting facilities
The multi-functional main hall is the centre of the house. In the standard setting, up to 380 people can be seated here. The chairs are placed on movable laths that can be mounted in various combinations depending on the event. The standard setting is 14 elevated rows, each with 28 chairs. Besides the stage based activities, there are also possibilities for showing films.
Klingran is a light and transparent room, constructed with the classic amphitheatre in mind. In its original position, there is room for 150 seated guests. Constructed as a sliding door, the white back wall can be taken away, combining Klingran and the main hall. This creates a spacious flat floor room with or without chairs. Removing the transparent door partitioning Klingran and the Lobby creates even more space. Combining Klingran and the Main Hall makes room for 600 sitting guests or 890 standing guests.
Top quality is likewise seen to characterize the conference section, Athøll. This is equipped with the latest audio-visual communication technology for various distinct purposes.
