Andrea Maack is an artist and perfume designer who was fascinated by Reykjanes when she moved back home in 2015 after a long stay in Italy. Colorful geothermal areas mixed with dark and cold nature are an inspiration in her brand Andrea Maak, but also in the design of her dream house Geopark Villa. She says it is remarkable itself that Reykjanes is recognized as a Geopark and that it is just allowed to build houses so close to unique geosites. "My foreign friends see how amazing this is, but Icelanders are gradually seeing it too".
