Houses Made of Wood and Light: The Life and Architecture of Hank Schubart.
SCHUBART. Dunkerley, Michele and Jane Hickie.
Houses Made of Wood and Light: The Life and Architecture of Hank Schubart.
American architect Hank Schubart was regarded as a genius for finding the perfect site for a house and for integrating its design into the natural setting so that his houses appear to be as native to the forest around them as the trees and rocks. Salt Spring Island, one of the Gulf Islands in British Columbia, Canada, offered him a place to create the kind of architecture that responded to its surroundings, and Schubart-designed homes populate the island. Built of wood and glass, suffused with light, and oriented to views, they display Schubart's signature features like random-width cedar siding, exposed beams, and rusticated stonework. This inviting book offers the first survey of the life and architecture of this master architect.
