Living quarters

Artists in residence can chose from different types of accommodation:

Standard / riverside bedrooms and communal living space in Kvennaskólinn (the so-called heimavist), or group / private accommodation in a newly renovated house on Árbraut 33 next door. Artists working on the TC2 digital loom stay in the house on Árbraut 35, where the loom is located.

Basic linen and towels are supplied and included in the residency fee. Other essentials such as tea-towels, sponges, dish-washing brushes, toilet paper, dish soap, and washing machine detergent are also provided. Residents are responsible for all other living expenses. More detailed information on house rules, living expenses, etc. is provided in our Book of Answers

Please note that the residency is for artists in residence only; visitors are kindly asked to book guest accommodation in town.
