A gorgeous Arthur Erickson home is given new life by BattersbyHowat, 45 years later.
We promise we're not going to make this whole issue a love letter to Arthur Erickson. But his work so succinctly demonstrates just what's special about West Coast Modernism: a connection to this beautiful, wild place. Case in point (if you'll bear with us for just one more swoon): the Eppich House, a terraced masterpiece that slinks down the West Vancouver landscape (as much as concrete can slink, anyway) to open up sprawling views of artfully positioned reflecting ponds and a verdant garden. Originally built in 1972, it enjoyed a respectful rehabilitation in 2017gracefully executed by BattersbyHowatwhich was featured in these pages. While the inhabitants and furniture (and rainscreen technology) may have changed, it remains, and always will remain, an ode to where we are.
Arthur Erickson's Eppich House was built in 1972 for Helmut and Hildegard Eppich.
We were excited to be doing this, but we also knew that all eyes would be on us, said architect David Battersby of BattersbyHowat in our July 2017 issue, seeing what wed done and not done.
