Henning Larsen completes building that doubles as bridge

Henning Larsen's Eysturkommuna town hall in Nordragota, Faroe Islands

Architect dubs Faroese town hall ‘world’s most scenic’

Henning Larsen has completed what it claims is the world’s most scenic town hall.

The building, on the Faroe Islands, is also a footbridge straddling the river which runs through the seaside village of Norðragøta, the regional administrative centre.

It has been designed to merge into the landscape, with a green roof and terraces that are open to the public who are encouraged to use it for picnics and swimming.
