Artist Pods

I visited Cove Park in Scotland last week, a place for artists to escape the city and get some work done.

As much as anything, I wanted a peek at the living-and-sleeping quarters, some of which are dome-topped wooden pods while others are converted shipping containers. They all seem to have grassy green roofs.

At the time, it was not my intention to post about the visit so my pictures aren’t the best, but here’s what I snapped up anyway.

The interior shots are all of the oakwood pods (I didn’t take any inside the shipping containers) except for the final picture, which is in a separate non-pod building serving as a communal workspace.
