Fogo Island Studio Newfoundland

Where the Gulf of St. Lawrence meets the Atlantic, the island of Fogo is a rare gem of global geography.  Rock meets water, frost meets grass and the surrounding mists provide little evidence of a barrier between sky and sea.  The architects at Bent Rene´Synnevåg laid claim to a section of the island in this structure, one of the most progressive works of architecture in modern Newfoundland.  This sharp, angular abode rises above craggy rock and angry surf, a duo that meet to form one of Canada’s most barren-yet-beautiful landscapes.  In every direction, a new and unique landscape meets its visitors eye, a panorama of land that appears almost alien to its very lucky guests.  [notbent via contemporist]
