Linear House on Salt Spring Island
Linear House is situated on a beautiful sixteen-acre farm on Salt Spring Island, the largest of the Gulf Islands in the Strait of Georgia between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia, Canada. Designed by Patkau Architects, the property is bisected from east to west by a long row of mature Douglas fir trees. There is a gentle slope falling across the site from south to north. The south half of the site contains an orchard; the north half a hay field. There was an existing cottage on the property which has been sold and relocated to a neighboring property. The existing barn, garage and studio buildings remain.
