Sometimes you need a blank canvas to spark your creativity. Squish Studio is one of four remote artist spaces scattered around Fogo Island. Each year writers, musicians, painters and thinkers from around the globe hunker down here as part of the @fogoislandarts residency program. I can’t imagine a more perfect spot to hole up for the winter and write. No distractions except the iceberg-studded ocean view. #fogoisland #canada #art #design #architecture #winter #toddsaunders #newfoundland #fogoislandinn #fogoislandarts #creatives #think #angles #remote #disconnect

Who would create a sleek getaway on the grounds of a former Icelandic concrete factory? Reykjavik architect Pálmar Kristmundsson - that’s who! Check out his unique seaside retreat - our cover subject - in the May issue of Azure, devoted to all of the great contemporary architecture redefining the Far North from Canada to Scandinavia. Also in the issue is Todd Saunders’ sinuous new cultural centre in Labrador and Henning Larsen North Atlantic’s genre-busting town hall-cum-pedestrian bridge in the Faroe Islands, insightfully interpreted by @simonlewsen. Pick up the May edition to see all of these northern lights and much, much more. #azuremagazine #northernlights #arcticcircle #pkdm #henninglarsen #henninglarsenarchitects #toddsaunders #toddsaundersarchitecture #giannibotsfordarchitects #annaheringer

#repost @saundersarchitecture (NSCAD BDes 1992 / DFA 2016) Returning to Fogo Island in seven days. I will be giving a lecture @fogoislandinn with @nomadicschoolofwonder December 7-12. My talk will be about the importance of intuition during creative processes. // The title of the gathering is : "The Art of Walking Upright. It is a five-night, six-day gathering and deep immersion into the community of Fogo Island. Together, we'll explore a more natural, essential way of being, living and belonging in a place you can't quite believe but always hoped existed" . #saundersarchitecture #toddsaunders #fogoislandinn #newfoundland @newfoundlandlabrador @enroutemag @explorecanada @natgeotravel photo @robsouthscott of our latest building called The Fogo Island Shed. #saundersarchitecture #toddsaunders #fogoisland #newfoundland #canada . . #nscad #nscaduniversity #iamnscad #nscadalumni @nscadaa

Waves of gratitude to architect Todd Saunders for sharing his creative process and “strange and familiar” architecture with us on Fogo Island this week. Pictured here behind Todd: the Squish Studio in Tilting, part of the @fogoislandarts artist in residence program. Todd’s mantra: “work hard, be kind.” @saundersarchitecture @fogoislandarts @shorefastfogoisland @fogoislandinn . . . #saundersarchitecture #toddsaunders #squishstudio #fogoisland #tilting #fogoislandarts #nomadicschoolofwonder

Read all about it! (Link in Bio) Can you imagine spending a few nights away this winter along the rugged coastline of Newfoundland @fogoislandinn This 43,000 square-foot Inn is perched on stilts and hugs the North Atlantic coastline. These stilts, or “shores,” underpin many of the buildings on Fogo Island due to the rocky, undulating topography. They support the Inn while also minimizing the overall building footprint and impact on the adjacent rocks, lichens, and berries. The Inn’s sharp angles and rough contours feel at home amidst Fogo Island’s jagged and uneven landscape. @saundersarchitecture #eastcoast #architecture #toddsaunders #contemporary #art #design #canada #naturelover #landscapephotography #fogoisland #bouteco #thehotelculture #fogoislandinn #newfoundlandandlabrador #goremote #travel #newfoundland #canada #igerscanada #explorenl #explorecanada #natgeo #netgeoexpeditions #natgeolodges

The Fogo Island Shed. This is our latest building on Fogo Island. Every house in outport Newfoundland has approximately three buildings. A shed is one of them and it’s a place to work on small practical projects but often becomes a gathering place for the owner and whoever wants to drop in for an informal chat, gossip, to solve easy and difficult problems, and to share useful but mostly useless facts (Newfoundlanders love telling outrageous, absurd and hilarious stories). The shed will officially open soon and I will show a few more individual photos over the next few weeks. // I will be giving a lecture @fogoislandinn with @nomadicschoolofwonder December 7-12.

Villa Djupastø, Haugesund, Norway. All day trip down the coast from Bergen to see the nearly completed concrete structure. The clients are one the most wonderful couples we have ever worked with and it’s always fun to see them.. The house is on the site of an old factory and has a view over the working harbour. We completed the neighbour house, Villa Riise, a few years ago. We have also designed four other houses on this industrial site that we we be involved in constructing in the coming years. #saundersarchitecture #toddsaunders #haugesund #norway

Clarity. Balance. Permanence. Legs for both stability and moving forward. Fishing stages like these were the inspiration for the #toddsaunders designed #fogoislandinn
