Nicholas Fudge for [EDIT] Magazine, Volume 6

The Rebirth of Prefab

by James Mullinger

Along with many like-minded Atlantic Canadians, I chose to vacation close to home last summer. It seemed churlish not to on the 150th anniversary of this great country. While on a road trip researching an assignment on Nova Scotia for England’s The Guardian newspaper, I found myself at the Quarterdeck Beachside Villas and Grill. For those in the know it has been a staple of summer (or indeed winter) road trips for decades. But recently expanded by Nicholas Fudge Architects, the Quarterdeck’s true splendour hits and wows you from the second you lay eyes on it.

The Quarterdeck has been here a long time. And Nicholas Fudge is a relatively new architect. Not only do his unique eye and vision create properties — both residential and commercial — unlike any you’ve seen before, but most are prefab, designed and marketed through his company, East Coast Modern, and constructed by Lloyoll Built in their factory on Nova Scotia’s South Shore, and transported to the project site. His name is already synonymous with supermodern, luxurious buildings with a nod to their history. On more than one occasion we have heard colleagues describe properties as being “like Nicholas Fudge.” Fudge obtained his undergraduate degree from St. Francis Xavier University and his Master of Architecture from Dalhousie University. Before starting his own practice in 2013 he worked for Behnisch Architekten in Los Angeles and world-famous MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects in Halifax.

The Maritime Edit’s Editor-in-Chief James Mullinger met with Fudge to learn more.
