The architects Solveig Fernlund, who attended the University of Lund, Sweden and Neil Logan, who studied architecture at Rhode Island School of Design, and Columbia University opened their studio fernlund + logan in the early 1990s. Since then they have been commissioned with several residential and commercial designs – above all offices and showrooms for the well known US textile manufacturer Maharam.

The studio in Guilford, Connecticut, which they finished in 2006 is exemplary for their residential architecture which clearly refers to the Scandinavian roots of the studio.

But let the architects explain it better:

“The house originally designed by Tony Smith in the 50′s consists of a main building, a guesthouse on stilts accessible from a ramp and a swimming pool built around a rock that marks the high point on the coast.”

“A studio / utility building has been added to the site replacing a derelict structure in the hillside. It consists of a structure of cast-in-place reinforced concrete following the contour lines of the hill with only 3 feet of the back wall and roof visible from the main building. No exterior or interior finishes have been added and a planted “green roof” integrates the structure to the garden. A cantilevered walkway serves as an outdoor corridor connecting the two separate functions of studio and mechanical room. In the main building, an exposed new kitchen was inspired by the materials and work of Tony Smith. In addition, extensive renovations of the existing swimming pool were made.”
