Villa Vinkkeli is located in the City of Rovaniemi, 2.5 km from the city centre in Ounasmetsä. The gallery has 160 square meters on two levels. The upstairs is 50 square meters and the downstairs 170 square meters. There is a total of seven exhibition rooms. Thus the gallery lends itself easily for group exhibitions.

The rails for hanging art are on top of the wall except in the studio room, which is 5 meters high, the rails are at 240 cm. The rails are of Stats-Cliprail style with perlon cord.
