The value of the agreement with Prologus is almost ISK 40 million (USD 319,000, EUR 200,000). Chairs from ten different producers were considered for the project, two of which were Icelandic, ruv.is reports.

This winter the final stage of the construction of Hof will be entered. The culture house is scheduled to open on August 29, 2010, which is Akureyri’s anniversary.
