The residence is located on the Western River Bank of the Porvoo River in the Culture and Congress Center Art Factory. Approximately 20 artists and creatives work in the building.

The residence consists of a work space and living space. The flat (open kitchen, bedroom, bathroom/shower) has a floor area of 56 m², and the work space with a high ceiling has a floor area of 35 m². The fee for the space is 50 euros per week, or 200 euros per month. The rent includes bed linens and towels.
