“Once you’ve slept on an island, you’ll never quite be the same…” It is a magical experience that makes you feel intrepid, different, removed, disconnected from the ordinary. Fiddlehead Island, a seasonal off-the-grid island 15 miles off the coast of Maine, provides a retreat from city life within the natural world. The design of a modular network of cabins has evolved over 25 years and is grounded in a long-term sustainable response to the unique aspects of the site, seasonal use of the land, engagement with the working waterfront, views to the summer sunsets and boat traffic, and the challenge of building on a remote island.
Susan Rodriguez speaks about Fiddlehead Island as a place of natural beauty, historic significance, and source of creative inspiration with Cindy Allen, Editor-in-Chief of Interior Design Magazine.
