fogo island inn

The Fogo Island Inn is a 29-room high-end eco-tourism facility on the island of Fogo, off the north-east coast of Newfoundland. In addition to providing accommodations the Inn also houses a community library and art gallery, an e-cinema and a five-star restaurant. A goal of the project was to make the Inn as energy and cost efficient as possible. Sustainable features include a high performance building envelope design and high-efficiency mechanical systems. Systems include radiant heating from solar thermal and wood boilers, solar domestic hot water for rooms and laundry, displacement ventilation with heat recovery, demand ventilation and summer outdoor air cooling with dehumidified outdoor air and kitchen exhaust air cleaning to avoid cooking odours.
