Our two major, unique artist studios

Our first studio space is used collectively and very well equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, all sorts of tools, tables, projector, wide range of technical equipment, professional photo printer A 2 and a professional photo studio. The space is 160 sqm in total, has floor heating and is extremely bright with a 30 sqm rooftop terrace. It´s a newly build complex located inside of the old FAHRBEREITSCHAFT, housing one of the major german art collections, berlin´s leading art framer, artist studios, carpinters and a professional photoprinting company. The ceiling is approx. 6 meters high. It´s a very special and unique working environment and all furniture is entirely on wheels, which means that we can completely change the space within a few minutes. It´s just a 20 min tram ride from our art gallery located in the center of Berlin-Mitte

The ground floor of our artist studio at FAHRBEREITSCHAFT Berlin 

Our second artist studio is in a three-story Prussian villa, studio and office building in Berlin-Alt-Hohenschönhausen. After years of being abandoned, the Villa Heike was renovated in 2015 and was turned into a multi-functional building with large functional units, studio’s and offices. We are happy to announce that we can use a beautiful two room studio on the second floor of this rich-in-history building. The studio has big windows with a lot of natural light, a high ceiling and grande white walls to hang your artwork.
