Artistic Living in Repurposed Freight Containers

Jan 7, 2010 by

It looks like the repurposed shipping containers I featured previously have some new real estate competition! Cove Park, a Scottish creative enclave that supports an amazing variety of artistic residencies, repurposed freight containers to become residential and studio units for its artists.

Each of the residential “cubes” have their own dining space, kitchen, and bathroom, along with balconies with gorgeous views of Loch Long.  I love the spacious, airy nautical feel that must be a fitting breath of creative air for its artists.
