Architect Fred Hollingsworth's post-and-beam homes in North Vancouver are the backbone of West Coast modernism.
Our Slack channel here at WL regularly pings with gorgeous homes someone has discoveredsometimes theyre around the world somewhere (this lovely spot in Palm Springs, for example), and sometimes it’s a local beauty, like this one designed by architect Fred Hollingsworth. It's just come on the market at $3.489 millionand It's repped and promoted by Trent Rodney at West Coast Modern, a real estate firm that's been doing God's work celebrating architectural gems (both current and historic) as they come on the market in the Lower Mainland, and matching them with future owners to preserve their heritage. Looking for an Arthur Erickson? Chances are they'll be the ones listing it.
As the folks at WCM note, Hollingsworth designed a number of affordable fir and cedar bungalows that he dubbed “neoteric” houses, based on a repeatable post-and-beam design that could be customized for each family. This House of Tomorrow II is all about the indoor-outdoor connection that ushered in a new era of west coast design, and It's just under 2500 square feet. It's been beautifully updated and maintainedthat brick, those beams!with a kitchen that's ready to host a celebratory party when our current restrictions lift.
