There are many distinct options and innovative opportunities for artist residencies, including mobile campers, floating platforms, social hub hostels and other secluded, compact and distraction-free spaces. Local architecture firm AB CHVOYA offers another option that boasts a studio, a three bedroom residential area, as well as a yoga space. Divided into two zones, the house is connected with a transit porch.

It is evident that an integral component of artist residencies is a close-to-nature factor and a peaceful ambiance. Located in a forest 60 kilometers away from St. Petersberg, the all-black house is clad with carbonized wood that helps the home seamlessly integrate into the wooden surroundings and its layout is decidedly informed by the plot's slope and the geographical predispositions of the area.
