The Swan House
With its industrial history, Vatnstígur 11 has been a big part of forming the city centre. Starting in the early 20th century, The Milk Company of Reykjavík (Mjólkurfélag reykjavíkur) bought the property and ran there the first milk store along with producing the milk in behind. In 1930, the house was purchased by a company specialized in making a Margarine. The company name could be translated as Swan butter (Svana smjörlíki). They then registered the house as “The Swan”. Later the company took an entirely different direction and started to make candy, chocolate and combust coffee. We try to keep the history of the building alive by making the industrial spirit come alive with our rustic and comfortable design.
