Designed 1963 Erickson/Massey | The area’s 1st multi-unit development
“These townhouses were organized from six properties for five individual clients, each with entirely different tastes and requirements. The houses are diverse in both size and price, and vary widely in interior arrangement and furnishings. The architectural problem was to discover a structural module that would unify these diverse elements. This was accomplished by using clusters of brick columns to form hallways, bathrooms, closets, storage areas, etc., and spanning the larger spaces between with wood beams and joists.
The result is an extremely flexible system of building which can be adapted to whatever requirements are specified in height or plan size and which, at the same time, presents a consistent and unified composition to the exterior.
The materials chosen were brick or plaster for walls and structural bays and pressure treated fir for the wood spans. These materials, along with brick or quarry tile floors, provide a relatively neutral background for the various furnishings of the owners. The resulting expression is directly that of the sturdy but graceful nature of the masonry against the more tenuous and taut nature of the wood.
The site commands a magnificent view of English Bay, the North Shore mountains of West Vancouver and the downtown Vancouver skyline to the east. Private south facing courtyards trap the sun and serve as entry courts from the streets. One outdoor and one indoor swimming pool were incorporated for individual owners as well as several roof gardens.”

“Arthur Erickson! Best Architect we ever produced! Rare residential offer on the “Golden Mile” built during one of his most creative periods (1965-SFU; 1970-winner top architectural award, Osaka Expo). This home was the Winner of the 1967 National Award for Design! As a Point Grey resident, he created this home to be perfect. To best describe this Masterpiece, a quote by the Concrete Poet: “Architecture has to be functional. But it should allow another dimension than what people are usually content to think about. It should open the perspective of the visitor to something they haven’t experienced before. It shouldn’t be ordinary or pedestrian.” Kept in its precious originality and offered for the first and perhaps, last time…”
