tungulending, identity for a guesthouse
Tungulending – the abandoned factory building next to the sea with its own pier and small harbour seemed to be forgotten for a longer period of time. First built and used as a salt fish factory, this spot has not been in a deep slumber for the last 15 years. Even though it is located at a wonderful place in a very special surrounding: With its famous fossils from the Tjörnes Peninsula layers, the history of fishing, the rough coast line with a lot of marine- and birdlife and last but not least with the most spectacular view over Skjálfandi Bay. No doubt, this place should get more attention again! By turning the place into a friendly café and individual guesthouse, it will be given the attention it truly deserves.
By capturing the aspects of the rough factory working surface, the sea air, the simple life as well as the peaceful and friendly atmosphere the design develops a welcoming and cosy sealife identity with a gastronomic touch.
