The Board of Directors of Landsbankinn has selected seven architect teams to submit initial proposals for the design of a new building to house Landsbankinn's headquarters at Austurhöfn in Reykjavík.

The new building will measure 16,500 m², of which the Bank will utilise 10,000 m² or around 60% of total square metres for own purposes, while renting out or selling around 6,500 m².

In early September, the Bank advertised for architects to design its new premises. A total of 26 architect teams/firms registered their interest, many notable and exciting names among them.

Initially, the aim was to select 3-5 teams to submit initial proposals. The Board of Directors has decided to add two teams to ensure a broader approach and allow a more diverse group to create initial proposals. The selected teams are:

  • Arkþing and C.F. Møller
  • BIG and Arkiteó in collaboration with BIG Engineering, VSÓ ráðgjöf, Dagný Land Design and Andri Snær Magnason
  • Henning Larsen and Batteríið arkitektar
  • Kanon arkitektar ehf. and Teiknistofan Tröð ehf.
  • MVRDV and Basalt arkitektar
  • PKdM arkitektar
  • Teymið - A2F arkitektar, Gríma arkitektar, Kreatíva teiknistofa, Landmótun and Trivium

The deadline to submit initial proposals is 11 January 2018. The selection of a winning proposal will be announced towards the end of February 2018.

Measures against money laundering have restricted foreign currency trading in cash severely and rules and legislation to prevent money laundering have been tightened, most notably in the Nordics.
