Modern Design Meets Tradition, High Above Tórshavn
Set high above the tiny capital, Tórshavn, Hotel Føroyar blends the best of modern Faroese art and design with tradition. The hotel was designed by Danish firm Friis & Moltke A/S and original pieces by Edward Fuglø are spread throughout the interiors, but, outside, the traditional grass roof and wooly sheep grazing outside windows evoke more typical images of the islands.
High up as it is, the hotel is a bit of a distance (35 minute walk) from the city, but the sweeping views of the harbor make the distance worth the effort.
