“Norwegian Bakery” to be Converted into Guesthouse

City officials, along with the National Committee on Architectural Heritage, have granted permission to turn the house on Fischersund 3, Reykjavík, into a guesthouse. The building is a wooden house which was built in 1876 and is referred to as the Norwegian Bakery, Fréttablaðið reports.

Due to the age of the house, Fischersund 3 is subject to the National Heritage Act. Therefore all changes to the building must be granted prior approval and changes must be handled with extreme care.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” />

Fischersund 3 belongs to Sólveig Eggertsdóttir, the wife of Þráinn Bertelsson, film director, writer, and member of the Left-Green Party. The building also houses offices which belong to the Historical Society of Iceland. Sólveig’s part of the building has been up for sale for a while. Sigfríður Þorsteinsdóttir, who runs a guesthouse at Lokastígur, requested permission to make changes to the building.
