Iceland's largest garden centre opened

Opening climate proof garden centre Reyjavik

Friday 12 April was the official opening of the new garden centre in Reykjavik.

On a once rugged 3-hectare volcanic site, Smiemans built this climate-proof 7,250m2 garden centre, which was recently opened for the Gardheimar family. Designed in collaboration with PK Arkitektar, the centre has a biophilic design that perfectly matches the company's ethos. Notable features include large, heat-resistant windows at the front, a green roof, vertical wooden blinds and an architecturally striking façade with continuous awnings.
