* Residential Architecture: Bridge Studio, Fogo Island by Saunders Architecture

Residential Architecture: Bridge Studio, Fogo Island by Saunders Architecture: “..dramatically located on a steep hillside overlooking the calm waters of an inland pond..From the side elevation, it ap- pears as a windowless wood-clad parallelogram, hovering above the landscape, propped up by four piers and connected by a sixteen-foot bridge to the adjacent hillside. As one approaches the three hundred and twenty square foot studio, it becomes more transparent – with a generous glass entry and a large square window at the other end of the room..Viewed from the glass entry, the ceiling from the entry slopes up to the top of a large picture window at the opposite end of the room. The picture window’s sill is flush with a built-in desk, the perfect place to write and contemplate the view. To mirror the sloped ceiling, the floor of the Bridge Studio is composed of two levels..”  Inspired, vernacular goes contemporary..
