Modern Design Meets Natural Beauty

Large arrow left

At night, the Fogo Island Inn glows like a futuristic lighthouse. Perched on 50-foot stilts, it looms above a craggy outcrop on an island off the northeast coast of Newfoundland. Architect Todd Saunders designed the building with sharp angles and rough contours that echo the jagged landscape. Every element of the 29-room inn was created on Fogo, a result of collaborations between residents and Canadian and European designers. The local quiltmakers’ guild stitched pieces based on antique designs, and six traditional patterns were used in the wallpaper. The inn’s public spaces include a movie theater, an art gallery, rooftop hot tubs, and a restaurant that uses locally foraged ingredients such as caribou moss.
Doubles from $530. (709) 658-3444. This appeared in the October 2013 issue.
