Ráðhústorg will become a “green“ square with a focus on vegetation, water and small gatherings.

New picture of Hafnarfjörður center was introduced at Hafnarfjörður council meeting. The new proposal is that Thorsplan will still be the main square in the heart of Hafnarfjörður and Ráðhústorg (City Hall square), today a parking lot in front of Hafnarfjörður library, will be a green square with focus on vegetation, water and small gatherings and events. Ráðhústorg and the area around it will become an attractive area that connects small and big trails in all directions.

Súfistinn coffeehouse and the intended extension of it will be the main focus of Ráðhústorg. The new look for Súfistinn extension will be a blend of the old Hafnarfjörður and modern houses. The plan for the extension is to have a dining space on the ground floor with a roof terrace turning towards Strandgata. The 2. and 3. floor will be four small apartments. Beggubúð, that was built in 1906, will be moved to its original place on Strandgata, right in front of Bæjarbíó to add even more of the old town to the square.
