  • "Nordiske Dragestil Solnedgang, Strinda Kirke, Trondheim, Sør-Trøndelag County, Norway"

Uniquely Norwegian in character, and based in ancient Nordic craftsmanship, Dragestil architecture flourished out of Europe's 19th Century National Romanticism. The architecture was inspired largely by the 12th Century stave churches in addition to several Viking-era archaeological excavations throughout the late 19th and early 20th Centuries; not least of all, the Gokstad and Oseberg Viking ships. © David Broome

  • The neighborhood that surrounds Þingholtsstræti on the slopes of the Skolavorduhaed Hill between the old city center around the Austurvöllur and the Hallgrímskirkja atop the hill.  The neighborhood was built up during the late 19th Century and early 20th Century by the rapidly expanding class of craftsman and urban professionals who were taking advantage of the nation’s early stages of urbanization and economic growth, and show off a variety of styles popular in the Nordic countries at the time, including the austere Neoclassical style, the National Romantic style, the Chalet style, and the less-common Dragestil style, which was very popular in Norway during the time period.  The houses share a great amount of similarity and overlap with the various wooden Victorian style structures built in North America at the time, but are distinctly Nordic, and most are well-proportioned, ornately detailed, and clad in corrugated metal, which reduces maintenance needs when compared to the original wooden exterior cladding, especially in Iceland’s rugged climate.  Today, this is one of the most architecturally significant areas of Reykjavík, and are relics from the time when the city was beginning to transition from a sleepy village into the vibrant capital city that it is today.
