Apotek is located at Austurstræti 16, one of the first large concrete buildings in Iceland. The building is known as “Apotekið” or “the pharmacy” because it housed Reykjavíkurapotek from 1930 to 1999.
It was designed by the one-time state architect of Iceland, Guðjón Samúelsson (1887-1950). Samúelsson was a respected architect and he designed several of the more majestic buildings in the Reykjavík during his career. He was also known for mixing different trends and styles in his design, and the influences in the building range from Art Nouveau, Danish Nationalist Romanticism with curved lines, poles, marble stairs and statues used for decorations.
