Studio spaces

Our converted barn contains three rustic studio spaces.

The movement studio (45 m²) features high ceilings and a sprung dance floor surfaced with a 3 mm natural rubber dance mat. The large barn doors can be opened on both sides of the space. Walls and ceiling are not insulated but there is an underfloor heating system for comfort on chilly days. Available June – early September (depending in activity).

The upstairs art studio (40 m²) features wooden floors and lots of natural light. This space is insulated and available late April – late September.

There is an adjacent smaller workshop (26 m²) with high ceiling, concrete floor and separate balcony entrance.

Downstairs, there is a fully-functional kitchen and bathroom as well as a communal area for meals, fika and meetings, with a cosy fire place at the heart of the building. On the south side of the barn, guests can enjoy a sunny space suitable for both bbq’s and outdoor projects.

Our studio spaces, accommodation and outdoor spaces are continuously being improved.

During the cold months (Oct – May), we also rent out desk space in the guest house. October is usually a beautiful time of year in Hållnäs, but a bit too cold for work in the barn.

Hållnäs konstkoloni is, in summertime, a home for artists in residence and occasional volunteers, as well as a family with two small children and a cat. Not all in the same house, but nearby! There are usually plenty of opportunities for social interaction,  tea breaks, meals and conversation – but always space to be on one’s own, too.

If you have ideas for a future art project, retreat or course you would like to run here, please email us at or ring Åsa +46 0704 68 46 07.
