Transforming a Derelict Location

Project 24 on site image

What is Project 24?

Project 24 is an innovative and impressive project which has captured the public’s interest, bringing vibrancy and interest to this popular seaside town, Bangor.

Project 24 utilises 6 bespoke, colourful art pods each split into two mini artist studios where artists take residency. The art pods are customised shipping containers, seen as light boxes with a fluid and translucent environment allowing visitors to experience different moods and atmospheres depending on the season and time of day.

Modern materials, modern furnishings and excellent lighting have helped to create this welcoming, vibrant, engaging and creative space.

The area around the art pods is landscaped with an event space ‘The Hub’,  seating and a community garden.
