Flóra is a cultural center focusing on the cultural heritage of Sigurhæðir house. Following Guðrún Runólfsdóttir and Matthías Jochumsson, who built the house in in 1903 and honored the value of a simple life, closer to nature and the arts. Artists and creative minds play a key role in rethinking society into this direction. Flóra culture house works with artists, designers, farmers and other, offering studios in the Sigurhæðir house, organising events and cultural projects. They are especially interested in textiles and texts.
