Port Rexton Residence & Studio

Location: Port Rexton, Newfoundland
Completed: 2007

The Port Rexton Residence and Mill Road Studio is set in the picturesque Port Rexton harbor, perched on a hillside overlooking Trinity Bay on the Bonavista Peninsula. Taking advantage of the natural beauty of the area was an important consideration in the siting and layout of the house, bringing the outside into the warm wood-clad interior spaces and allowing for views over the harbor from each room. The client – an artist – required a second small studio space on the site for his personal workspace and classes as well. In more recent years the main house has fondly become known within the community as “Big Pink”, and is complimented by the smaller structure, Mill Road Studio, that is painted a deep red, both picturesque set against the exceptional natural landscape beyond.
