Linear House

The latest residential project from Patkau Architects: Linear House

Sited between a Douglas Fir cluster and an orchard on Saltspring Island, the house spans 276 feet in length and exhibits the highly refined Patkau aesthetic; in this case, realized in broad rectilinear form in fibre-cement board and maple millwork.

The interior spaces are expansive and relate directly to the surrounding landscape through top hung doors that, at their widest, open to 78'. In the right light these openings appear from inside as vast, beautifully rendered landscape paintings.

Linear House has been widely profiled since its completion and recently won at AZ award.
