Cove Park is a center for established artists situated on the west coast of Scotland in 50 acres of spectacular countryside.
In 2002, Container City created three en-suite accommodation units (known as 'cubes') to act as artist retreats. In order to blend into the rural surroundings sliding glass doors were installed that lead out onto the decked balcony that extends over a lake with beautiful views of Loch Long.
Due to the success of the first three units, three more have been commissioned and are due for completion in June 2006.
The accommodation at Cove Park, an artist’s retreat in Western Scotland, shows a strong green ethos. The more luxurious option is one of the pods which featured in the BBC’s Castaway 2000 programme. Both have been upgraded from the original remote island models and feature both living and working areas.
Units are fashioned from intermodal cargo shipping containers.
