Built on the shores of Fogo Island, a remote island off the northeastern coast of Newfoundland in Canada, between the Equator and the North Pole, the futuristic building of Fogo Island Inn wins the visitors from the first glance. The minimalist masterpiece houses a boutique hotel and is in stark contrast to the traditional fishing village that surrounds it.
The inspired architecture starts from the outside, with a dominant component piece of the building based on giant metal bars. In the 29 suites the furniture is selected by young artists, and has paid great attention to detail with state of art pieces and has emerged the long history of the island in fishing.
Environmental sensitivity is also evident at each site, with the selection of sustainable building materials and recycling programs and energy conservation to play a key role in the operation of the hotel. Two glass walls, reminiscent of the bow of the ship, the area surrounding the restaurant, giving guests the feeling that they are in the middle of the North Atlantic.
Wooden floors and minimalist aesthetics lend a relaxed atmosphere in space, offering local delicacies and of course a wide variety of fresh fish and sea food. The hotel features a gym, sauna and hot tub for relaxing moments, but also an art gallery with works of contemporary art screening room library. That and the unique aesthetic retreat will offer you total relaxation in a unique environment.
