Atelier Palermo

Palermo is a city of contrasts, where baroque splendor meets morbid charm and a lively atmosphere. In the capital of Sicily, Stefan Koppelkamm—graphic designer, photographer and author—has fulfilled his dream of having his own atelier in a baroque palazzo. During the time he is not using the studio, it can be rented.

Atelier Palermo is located in a narrow street in Palermo’s old town, in the immediate vicinity of old aristocratic palaces and prestigious museums. The 150-square-metre studio apartment on the third floor of the refurbished Palazzo San Gabriele provides rooms for working and living. The heart of the apartment is the 64-square-metre studio, which extends up to the roof ridge with an impressive ceiling height of seven meters. A stairway leads to an open gallery with a working area. The kitchen-living room with a ceiling height of five meters also conveys a generous ambience. There are two bedrooms with double beds (with an additional sleeping area on the gallery if required) and two bathrooms. The apartment is sunny all day long and has an—in the old town unusual—unobstructed view from the front windows.

What to do

IIn the neighbourhood there are numerous bars, cafés and restaurants; strolling around the colourful markets; exploring the old town with its churches and palazzi; visiting the museums, beach and exploring the island.

  1. Meine Frau und ich haben das Atelier Palermo für eine Woche im Oktober total genossen. Die Lage in der Altstadt ist großartig, fast alles ist zu Fuß erreichbar. Die Großzügigkeit der Räume und die sparsame, aber hochwertige Einrichtung lässt einen auch bei einem Arbeitsaufenthalt ein Gefühl von Freiheit. Vielen Dank, wir kommen bestimmt wieder!

  2. Danke! Wir waren zu zweit von Anfang bis Mitte Oktober 2020 im Atelier zu Gast. Für uns war es eine Kombination aus Urlaub und Arbeit. Und das Atelier hat uns dabei so wunderbar unterstützt und aufgenommen. Es war vom ersten Moment an, als ob wir zu Hause waren. Ein sehr freundlicher Empfang, eine perfekte Einführung und Räume, die uns einfach nur beeindruckt haben. Nach 2 Wochen wunderbarer Zeit, wollten wir nicht abreisen. Auch die wieder so freundliche Übergabe hat es uns noch schwerer gemacht. Wir kommen sicher wieder, für längere Zeit: das Atelier und Palermo haben das verdient.
