Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik City Centre Architecture and Design Podcast

November 30, 2016


Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik City Centre was hand-picked by Hilton's in-house architecture and design team to take part in the podcast project. The podcast highlights the fascinating history of the local area that inspired the design of the new build hotel, located in a district renowned for its graffiti.

Other features include the work of Sigurður Ámundasonhe, whose art adorned a house torn down to make way for the hotel, and who was invited to create new pieces for Canopy. Other street artists have contributed work as part of a collaboration between the hotel and the Reykjavik Arts Festival. 

The other four hotels profiled in the new audio guides are; Hilton Conrad Dublin (Ireland), Hilton London Bankside (United Kingdom); Hilton Paris Opera (France); and Reichshof Hamburg - Curio Collection by Hilton (Germany).
