Kjarval ehf., ID no. 670418-0140, operates Vinnustofa Kjarval - an office and meeting space, coworking- and social platform in downtown Reykjavik, Iceland - hereafter referred to as Kjarval.
Kjarval is located in the heart of Reykjavik city, with magnificent views of the city center and its surroundings. Kjarval is particularly well-suited to meet clients and colleagues for or outside work, cultivate relationships with others or work in privacy.
Kjarval covers about 700 square meters on the two top floors of adjacent houses no. 10a and 12 in Austurstræti. There is a spacious balcony to both south and north. Kjarval offers good facilities for meetings and gatherings and drinks and food in collaboration with nearby restaurants. Great emphasis is placed on guests enjoying privacy if they choose and mutual respect.
These house rules were updated on April 20, 2022, and all customers, their guests, and staff must follow them. Their goal is to ensure the quality of service and maximize customer satisfaction.
Individuals and businesses can be members of Vinnustofa Kjarval, provided that the parties sign an agreement to that effect. By signing a contract, the user agrees to these terms/rules of the place.
The customer receives an access card(s) in line with the provisions and specified number in the contract. Each access card is assigned to a person who gets the card for installation on their telephone. The customer has access to Vinnustofa Kjarval, open areas, meeting rooms, and restaurant facilities during the studio's general opening hours. Each access card is for the person registered on the card only.
Membership is for a minimum of one year and renewable after that on an annual basis. If a customer wishes to terminate his membership, the termination must be done in writing and with three months' notice. Termination is based on the end of the month.
Kjarval is open to members and their guests during normal business hours.
The opening hours may change depending on circumstances. However, the workshop shall be open for a minimum of six days a week. Information on opening hours is available on www.kjarval.com.
Kjarval may be closed 15 times a year for private events
Booking of the meeting rooms is made via www.kjarval.com and the Skedda booking app that members install on their phones. If a meeting room is available, you can book it without notice. If the customer wants to ensure access to a specific space at a specific time, it is appropriate to book the space in good time. When booking meeting spaces, the number of guests should be considered, so small meetings are not held in large rooms.
To ensure good utilization of meeting rooms, make cancelations easier, and ensure the equality, the following rules apply to the use of meeting rooms:
• Each member can book a meeting room for a maximum of 8 hours per week.
• Before the booked meeting time, the member receives an e-mail asking them to confirm the meeting. The booking is automatically canceled 15 minutes into a meeting if the session is not confirmed electronically.
• Members can only book one meeting space at a time.
• Members can only book a meeting room for themselves, and not friends, spouses, co-workers, or others.
Kjarval stores customer information - names and e-mail - in a database to ensure continuity of service and customer satisfaction.
Kjarval can send newsletters and other information electronically to members, including information on additional services or offers. Members can reject such mailings and unsubscribe from the mailing list.
All processing of personal data is in line with the Act on Personal Data Protection and Processing of Personal Data (No. 77/2000)
Membership fees are collected monthly with electronic invoices, due on the 1st of each month. A member who pays with a credit card is charged on the 26th of each month for the coming month. Members can pay membership fees in advance, quarterly, or annually.
If a member does not pay an invoice within 30 days from the given deadline, he can not access Kjarval until overdue invoices are paid. In the event of termination of a membership contract due to non-compliance, the client shall reimburse an amount equivalent to the traditional notice period, according to Art. Article 1 of these terms/house rules.
Members can put purchases on their bills if they provide a credit card to secure the payment. The member is responsible for informing Kjarval about credit card changes if they occur.
Settlement for purchased goods must be finalized before members leave the house, either with a signing of an invoice or direct payment.
If a member leaves the house without paying for goods Kjarval will collect the debt. Such actions may result in extra costs for the member. Repeated failure to settle a bill before leaving may result in termination of membership.
Members set up an electronic access card to Kjarval on their smartphones upon registration. The card is only intended for the registered user, who is forbidden to lend the card/phone to others for use. Kjarval employees may ask guests to present their access cards at the entrance or during services.
We encourage members to report any technical problems using the access card, e.g., by e-mail to email@example.com or verbally to the employees. Staff will assist as needed, e.g., by changing the phone settings. If a member has renewed his phone, the access card must be re-installed.
Kjarval cares about the safety and well-being of members, other guests, and employees. Security cameras are located at the entrance and in open spaces to secure appropriate surveillance and protect the interests of Kjarval's customers.
Electronic monitoring follows the Icelandic Personal Data Protection Act (No. 77/2000). We protect our members' privacy by all means, and we expect all guests to show each other mutual respect. Photography of members, their guests, and Kjarval employees is not allowed.
Each member can invite up to five guests to Kjarval at any given time. A member must be present with his guests but is allowed to provide his guests with an access code for entrance. Our employees have the information on daily guest codes and will deliver them upon request.
A member is responsible for his guests, their behavior, compliance with house rules, damages they may cause, and payment for purchases. The minimum age of guests is 25 years. Members and their guests are not allowed in after closing.
Although Kjarval focuses on the needs of adults, children are welcome accompanied by guardians until 8 PM. Members are responsible for the children they bring to Kjarval and must consider the circumstances, the needs of other guests, their right to privacy, etc.
Having creativity as a critical value, our members can express themselves through clothing. As long as you're clean and tidy, you're welcome to dress the way you want.
If you want to fit in, our clientele prefers business or smart casual clothing.
Dress codes may apply at special events.

To ensure a relaxed atmosphere, members and visitors should talk quietly on the phone and minimize the nuisance caused by telephones, e.g., keeping them in silent mode. Video calls should only take place in designated areas. Members and their guests should use headphones when playing music or other sounds from computers and telephones, as others should not be disturbed.

No member, guest, or employee may buy, consume, own, sell or otherwise distribute illegal drugs at Kjarval. If exposed, the person in question will immediately be asked to leave the place. Such incidents may also cause termination of membership.
No one should buy, sell or use any illegal or stolen goods at Kjarval. If we discover such goods, they will be confiscated and handed over to the police.
Members and their guests cannot bring food and drink for consumption to Kjarval, as refreshments are for sale on site. The same applies to refreshments in private events, which must be purchased from Kjarval but not from a third party without the mediation of Kjarval.
Kjarval organizes meetings and events of various kinds. In general, such events are neither photographed nor recorded. Still, in some cases, it is done for promotional purposes, e.g., for social media or other marketing material.

We want all members and their guests to enjoy the facilities available at Vinnustofa Kjarval.

Anyone who intentionally removes, damages, or destroys the property of Kjarval, cardholder, or other guests must fully compensate for the damage.
