The Studio House (Atelierhaus) in the Sitterwerk has three artist studios. In the largest — a hall with a height of seven meters, equipped with a heavy-duty crane and accessible for trucks — expansive artistic gestures are possible. It is possible to live in the two smaller studios, which offer, in the context of the Sitterwerk and the Kunstgiesserei, an inspiring framework for concentrated artistic work.

The management of the Studio House is based on a flexible use concept: the Sitterwerk offers invited guest artists the opportunity to realize a project in one of the studios. It is also possible to rent a studio in order to be able to have access to the extraordinary infrastructure of the Sitterwerk, the Kunstgiesserei and the Photo Lab.
