Background and Location

The studio was originally built in 1998 on Islands Brygge, a renovated wharf area in the center of Copenhagen, Denmark. In 2015 the studio was relocated to the island of Funen, 25 minutes from Odense. The studio is now integrated in a beautifully restored country estate with 5 acres of land.

Facilities
