The Temple is the House: A Sacred Cedar Home

Finely crafted with solid cedar timbers, this retreat on British Columbia's Gambier Island proves that building a good home is a sacred act.

The house nestles into the trees on Gambier Island. "It is intrinsically now a part of the site, such that it's difficult to think of the site without the home or the home without the site," says architect Henry Yorke Mann.
