The Artist Residency is beautifully placed on top of a small hill in an island, only a short walk from the sea outside Kragerø, Norway. It is an extension to an existing old timber barn performing as a gallery. The gallery and residency can only be accessed by the sea and are situated close to the harbour stop which connects with the city center. The overall purpose with the construction of an artist residency at the island has been to create a new and inspiring place for the artists during their summer stay. It sets to offer both residency and a social arena interacting with others visiting the gallery in a more intimate and warmer atmosphere than the existing one.
