The old fish salting house in Skagaströnd has undergone major renovation. Nes is now offering year round residencies and short stays to groups with or without studio space. Artist collectives, university groups, writers retreats, art classes, performance teams and other arts organisations that wish to collaborate on projects or work together on common goals/themes can now apply. We are also offering short stay residencies to single independent working artists who are looking for 2 – 4 week stays and require no studio space. We are now taking applications for 2019.
Salthús situated high at the edge of the sea features uninterrupted vistas over looking Húnaflói Bay out to the Westfjords.
Renovation is now completed and the whole building will offer accommodation with 11 double rooms and 3 twin share rooms.
Each double room is more than 20m2 and will have queen size bed, desk and casual seating area.
Each floor of the building has shared kitchen and laundry facilities.
These group residencies are for a duration of 2 or 4 weeks and longer by negotiation.
For an extra fee Nes will provide 24/7 access to a studio space in the building next door which is complete with kitchen and bathroom facilities, both the studio and accommodation have free wifi.
For larger groups and with advanced notice we can offer the 14 rooms (both floors) of Salthús.
