The organisation is committed to preserving the Islanders’ traditions and aims at rejuvenating the island through the arts and culture.

This commission had an additional and far more personal resonance to the architect. This would be a chance for not only experimenting with traditional architectural forms, methods and materials in a unique location, but also for working in Newfoundland, where Saunders grew up.
