Cove Park artist centre secures interior design funding
Cove Park, a planned artist’s residency in Argyll, has secured in-kind funding for its interior spaces by haa design, alongside a grant from Arts & Business Scotland, ensuring that a fit-out of the under construction facility can go ahead in time for its opening this summer.

Designed by Cameron Webster Architects the £1.4m residence will include a kitchen, communal spaces, accommodation, library, office space and studios which will be available year round for use by artists, the local community and visitors.

Hugh Anderson, director of haa design, said: “The culture of Cove Park is unique and the atmosphere that requires to be reflected within the Artists’ Centre will echo the open and collaborative way in which guests and residents come together. As we see it, the style which has been set by the building itself, of openness and simplicity, requires to be enhanced at the same time as making the community spaces comfortable and welcoming.”

Designed to foster creative exchanges between residents the purpose built facility will also enable the charity to deliver an enhanced programme of community and education activities.
