Held Over Water, designed by Janet Langdon, is symbolic of the historic Newfoundland and Labrador culture of building houses, stages and stores on stilts. They protect against high waters, offer scenic vistas and allow buildings to hug the rocky shorelines.
Stages are transitionary spaces between the land and the water, offering protection from the elements. Similarly, quilts provide a sense of security in their utilitarian warmth while providing beauty and design in our spaces.
The stilts in Held Over Water reference the iconic stilts of the Fogo Island Inn.
