This small-scale project, done in collaboration with Rafael Herrin-Ferri,  has the role of maximizing the enjoyment of a narrow peninsula jutting out from Number Nine Island.  It's bent-bar form hugs the water's edge on one side, while creating a gathering space to the south.

The roof rises from the small, cabin-like volume of the sauna to a generous 18' high, multi-purpose room.  Separating these two spaces is a breezeway that leads down to a dock.  A large, east-facing window orients the practice of yoga in the multi-purpose room, while also acting as a beacon for the island on Goose Bay.
