Artist and architect James Hubbell creates free flowing, sloping, sky soaring structures integrated into their natural surroundings and infused with mosaics, wrought metal, carved wood, stained glass, shells and gemstones. Hubbell and his wife, Anne, founded the Ilan-Lael Foundation in 1982 to administer their private Santa Ysabel estate for public educational purposes. Since 1958, Hubbell has been designing and building a collective of small structures that have served as residential units, studios, and contemplative spaces for his family and artists in residence. The 40 acres site also includes numerous sculptures. Although the property still serves as his primary residence, the Foundation utilizes it as an educational facility conducting public workshops and special events throughout the year.
