“Wergelandshaugen AS was established in 2017 when Annicken Thrane-Steen bought the site. Since then, the Magistrate’s residence has been restored, the stable wing revitalized and the buildings Atelierlåven and the micro houses were completed in 2022.
The magistrate’s residence
The villa was built in 1921 and has now been restored with the idea of preserving the 1920s classicism as a style. The architects Arneberg were absorbed with the Norwegian noble style and the 18th century. Come on a guided tour to learn more.

Wergelandshaugens Salonger is the association responsible for all art at WH. Among them is WH AiR, which is a residency program where artists are encouraged to apply for the annual open application. Here it is possible for artists to get to know others with different professional backgrounds, and to immerse themselves in their own artistry.
The micro houses
Four micro-houses have been built on the historic site, half the year artists live here during WH AiR, and you can rent to you and your friends and colleagues in summer and winter. The micro houses are a unique accommodation option.”
