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 the Reykjavik apotek from 1930 to 1999.
It was designed by the one-time state architect of Iceland, Guðjón Samúelsson (1887-1950), who was a respected architect and he designed several of the more majestic buildings in the Reykjavik 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.
The design duo Leifur Welding & Brynhildur Guðlaugsdóttir designed Apotek kitchen and bar. The concept of the design was keeping the integrity of the building and it’s history while creating a modern, fun and relaxed atmosphere. There are many original features in the restaurant old restored wood wall panels, original marble and wall décor.
