Guest studios.

Foundation B.a.d. offers guest studios to local and international artists. Since 1992, more than 400 artists, architects, and designers have resided in our guest studios. We are a non-subsidized organization, and our members run the guest studio program voluntarily. We do not provide grants or financial help to our guest artists. We sometimes organize events in which our guests can participate. Guests can also present their work at B.a.d.


We ask that you can function within and contribute to our community. You are self-sufficient and willing to follow a few guidelines regarding health & safety, good housekeeping, and consideration for others. We also provide our guests with a handbook which contains useful information to support their stay.

The spaces.

B.a.d. offers three guest studios. Each space has a sink, basic furniture (table, chairs, bed, etc.), and wireless internet access. The guests can use the communal kitchen, which has two sinks, a large gas cooker and oven, necessary cooking equipment, crockery and cutlery, towels, and a dining table and chairs, and we provide tea and coffee. The shared bathroom has two shower cubicles, a washing machine, and space for drying laundry. We also have a large communal garden and outdoor pavilion. See below for images.

B.a.d. during COVID-19

Our guest studio programme is still running.
B.a.d. is asking its guests and members to take personal responsibility for their health and the health of others. Everyone at B.a.d. is asked to observe social and physical distancing guidelines and maintain high levels of hygiene when using our building and its facilities. Our members are also taking steps to ensure regularly used surfaces, such as door handles, are regularly cleaned, and we ask our guests to do the same. Since the national guidelines concerning the pandemic change as the best develops, so will our response. For now, we are doing our utmost to continue supporting our guests and members as best we can.
