Fogo Island Shed Hotel Dining Room
by Todd Saunders

  • Awarded April 15, 2019
  • CLIENT: Fogo Island Inn
  • 42.033
Designed around the notion of 'slow eating', the space is intended to foster a social approach to dining, with a long table set alongside an open plan kitchen. The new building combines contemporary forms with traditional techniques, evoking a strong sense of place through the simplicity and porosity of its interior and exterior volumes. Essentially a simple timber shed, the structure uses the studio's trademark tilted and twisted geometry to create visual drama, as part of the wild landscape.
