Cove Park Artist Retreat

Recently, I have been thinking a lot about container living. Through my research I came across this wonderful artist retreat situated on 50 acres on the fringes of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park in Scotland, called Cove Park.  The retreat was founded in 1999 by Eileen and Peter Jacobs as a place for artists of all kinds to research and develop new projects. Cove Park has created two different types of accommodations that are environmentally focused. The Pods, designed by Andy McAvoy,   are made of green oak and their curved roofs are turfed to blend in with the environment. The Cubes, designed by Urban Space Management, are converted freight containers joined together to produce individual units of accommodation and work spaces.

What a place to get inspired and create!
