Turninn / PK Arkitektar

Garke, Thórsteinn Geirharðsson
Area: 23,000 sqm

From the architect. Reykjavik’s skyline is dominated, not so much by the city’s low-level urban massing,
but more by the backdrop of blue, white and grey mountains in the distance. Therefore, any addition to the
skyline must take its geographical and topographical context into consideration. The building in this case
faces the bay of Reykjavík and the mountain Esja across. Read more on ArchDaily.

Open Competition: First prize, April 2010

Client: The Ministry of Education, Science and Culture and the city of Mosfellsbær
Sizes: Netto area: 2855 m2, brutto area: 4094 m2, brutto volume: 11.682 m3

From the architect. The first phase of FMOS, the new Upper Secondary School in Mosfellsbaer, provides space for up to 500 pupils. The building is
intertwined with the landscape on the narrow plot, the diagonal lines of the building refer to the hills in the surroundings and one of the roofs turns
into a green ramp to walk about on. Mosfellsbær is a town of approximately 9.000 inhabitants, situated 15 kilometers east of Reykjavik. It is the
hometown of Iceland’s noble prize winner, writer Halldór Laxnes, from whom inspiration is sought: ”… and flowers grow on the roof”* – the
landscape becomes the building which becomes landscape… The 12.000 sqm plot of the school is situated close to the town center and along
Highway nr. 1, which lies through Mosfellsbær. This influences the shape and choice of material of the building, aiming to minimize sound emission.
