Contributing towards a better, healthier and greener city, FABRIC creates a hub for health, wellness and sustainable lifestyles, creating a unique opportunity to showcase a new era in construction and a beacon of sustainable design in the City of Reykjavík.
The project aims to reduce its overall carbon footprint by opting for low-carbon construction materials.
FABRIC incentivizes alternative and communal ways of living and working, mixing co-habitational housing, shared office space, public space, service and retail. A green ribbon throughout the building embodies many roles, from communal spaces and circulation, to events and greenhouse areas.
FABRIC focuses on delivering an exemplary architecture in the City of Reykjavík where forward-minded businesses and individuals are given a chance to thrive in a communal, open building, designed for a healthier and better future.
