The square, two-staged light tower was built in 1938-1939 and was Iceland's first lighthouse built of reinforced concrete. The lighthouse was designed by Axel Sveinsson, and influenced by the ideas of Guðjón Samúelsson (1887–1950), state architect of Iceland.
The tower is 26.2 metres (86 ft) high and unpainted. There are black panels arrayed vertically between the windows that create the appearance that the tower has a black vertical stripe on each side. The design is a blend of the functionalism and art nouveau styles. The light characteristic is one 3 second long flash every 30 seconds.
