About

Spriten Project Space was established in 2007 in a former rubbing alcohol (spirits) factory in Skien. The factory was established in 1917 and produced rubbing alcohol until the Second World War. 


The building is in jugend style and is a landmark in Skien with its tall distillation tower. After the war the alcohol-production was halted and the building housed a mechanical workshop and laboratories in conection with the Union paper mill until 2006.
