The farm is located in a forest, in 500 metres outside the village Erhnavolok ( karelsk. Kijskonijemi) on the shores of lake Kroshnozero (karelsk. Noujarvi).
The main idea of residence is the situation between civilization and wild forest in order to stimulate different ecological, cross-border and nothern aimed artist´s ideas and activities.
Also the continious time is important for us, so the residense house is made by old tehnologies from ´wild´ logs, so is the style of our life here.
