A whitewashed artists' studio has risen along the desolate, rocky coastline of Fogo Island off the coast of Newfoundland. Squish Studio was designed by Saunders Architecture for transient artists who make the voyage to immerse themselves in their work with only the crashing waves and shifting panoramas as company. The structure is supported by a series of stilts and takes advantage of its squished shape to deflect the constantly roaring coastal winds. Solar panels placed atop a nearby hill are the only source of power for the studio's electricity and small kitchen.
