‘Home from Home’ is a bespoke pavilion that will be used as a temporary outdoor arts venue and a catalyst for creative activity for two years. To find out what is happening at the structure please visit

Its modular design was influenced by Yate’s 20th-century evolution into a centre of manufacturing and explores ideas around sustainability and shelter. The structure is built from repurposed waste material and timber offcuts from building sites, including the development itself (Ladden Garden Village) and the Whirlpool washing machine factory in Yate.
FACTORY (as documented below), was a public event at Spike Island in Bristol in 2019 as part of their Open Studios event. This began the process of preparing the offcuts to make Home From Home, with help from Yate Men’s Shed and hundreds of other members of the public.
