Fancy an artist's studio with a difference? Saunders has it covered

Posted by Maya Davies,

Bergen-based architecture practice Saunders were invited to design a collection of six artists’ studios on Fogo Island, Newfoundland. These dramatic geometric structures act like beacons set against the landscape, while referencing materials from the existing vernacular architecture. A celebration of the island’s art and culture, they look like pretty inspiring spaces to work/procrastinate/relocate to. Where can we sign up?

The studios were a joint venture between The Shorefast Foundation and the Fogo Island Arts Corporation. In addition, Todd Saunders’ practice was commissioned to produce another, larger bespoke piece of architecture contributing to the island’s cultural scene. Fogo Island Inn, planned for completion later this year, will house a cinema, independent gallery, restaurant, and library. Watch this space.
