Reykjavik is the capital of Iceland. The engineering of Reykjavik is fundamentally low-ascent, with many low pinnacle blocks and a few story structures with pitched rooftops prevailing. Houses and modest metropolitan structures are wooden-outlined and clad in wooden boards or rigid metal. Frequently they were painted in conventional brilliant colours. Numerous engineering impacts are visible in the capital, such as the previously well-known Swiss chalet style.
