In addition to the bedroom studios, there is a living room and formal dining room and sunny communal kitchen. Meals are the responsibility of each resident. In the past, residents have pooled food, prepared meals together and shared dinners are held in the dining room or garden, weather permitting. Island writers and artists are often invited to take part in these informal gatherings.
