Árbraut 33 / 35

The Textile Center residency housing also includes two three-bedroom houses located right next to Kvennaskólinn. The houses were designed by Icelandic architect Guðrún Jónsdóttir, who was inspired by the Danish architectural style, in the early 1970s. 

Árbraut 33 is newly renovated and can be rented as a whole or as separate rooms. The house features three bedrooms (1 double, 2 single), kitchen, spacious living room, two bathrooms, laundry room and garden with stunning views of river Blanda and the ocean. House 33 is well suited for smaller groups (4 people max.), or artists looking for a little more privacy and comfort. Artists have access to the work facilities in Kvennaskólinn. Please contact residency@textilecenter.is for more information. 

Árbraut 35 is where the TC2 digital loom is located and artists working on the digital loom are staying. The house is older, but in decent shape. It features three bedrooms, plenty of storage and work space, a kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and living room overlooking river Blanda and the ocean. Please note that artists confirmed for a TC2 residency have exclusive access to the digital loom, although the house itself may be shared with another artist or scholar in residence. TC2 artists in residence have access to all work facilities and equipment in Kvennaskólinn. Find more information and apply for a digital loom residency (one month) here
