Samuel Maclure

  • Person
  • 1860-1929

Samuel Maclure was an iconic local architect, responsible for designing over 325 commissions through his Victoria and Vancouver offices. Maclure is perhaps best known for his collaboration with Francis Rattenbury on what is now termed the Rattenbury-Maclure Government House, which burned down in 1957, and for Hatley Castle, but he was also responsible for numerous houses throughout Victoria in the Arts and Crafts style. The plans for Hatley Castle show the symmetry and balanced proportions characteristic of his work.

Hatley Castle was not Maclure’s first commission for the Dunsmuir family, but it marked the first time he worked with James Dunsmuir. Dunsmuir was familiar with Maclure’s work from his period as Lieutenant-Governor, however, and the plan of Hatley Castle bears marked resemblances to that of the Rattenbury-Maclure Government House.
