The architecture of The KaviarFactory represents the optimism of the 1950s in its form as well as in the solid brick construction, and not least in the challenging site. The ocean literally washes the facade with northwesterly winds. Ms. Venke Hoff bought the building in 2006 to save it. The idea of reshaping the Factory into a gallery of contemporary art developed over time. «The KaviarFactory» has gained awareness internationally for the way it has been preserved. It is a landmark at the entrance of Henningsvær, marking the end of the National Tourist Roads. The signs on the facade Is a conceptual work, a gift from Michael Sailstorfer (Germany). Bjarne Melgaard created the door handles.
The KaviarFactory is an international venue for contemporary art. Located in Henningsvær, in the middle of the archipelago of Lofoten, Norway, it takes advantage of its off-the-grid location and aims to offer experiences and confrontations that never previously have been available to such regions.
