Kollgata arkitektúr
location Akureyri
function cafe
contributed by Nazar

The main objectives of Kollgata were to create a building which could capture the spirit of its surroundings. The Botanical gardens themselves had to be in a primary role with this new building as a supportive point of interest, providing necessary services to the visitors and creating a year round attraction. There were already two small buildings in the gardens with one of them being one of the oldest buildings in Akureyri, and thus demanding respect especially in this setting. The basis for the design was to create a cafe that would clearly be a testament to the times we live in and at the same time keep with the atmosphere already created by these older buildings. Therefore we sought inspiration in their form, colors and scale and we looked to locally manufactured and tested materials to keep with the ideas of sustainability and heritage. Materials that would also allow us to implement modern details with precision.
