This timber framed apartment accommodates four artists. The small bedrooms are lifted five meters (16.4 feet) above the ground on the triangular corners of the building. The open-air covered courtyard is shared by the residents as their communal studio and gallery. The exterior stairs to bedrooms are sometimes used as seating when there are performances in the gallery.
