This may be your last chance to tour an Arthur Erickson masterpiece

Since 2018, Measured Principal Clinton Cuddington has been a board member of the Arthur Erickson Foundation, committed to building the legacy of the iconic Canadian architect, Arthur Erickson.

On Thursday, December 5, the Foundation will host a lavish fundraising reception and tour of Eppich House II. Designed in 1979 and completed in 1988, the West Vancouver home features a unique curving steel structure and spectacular walls of glass. This is Arthur’s most fascinating residential building and one that the architect himself called, “my most complete work.” 

Since the owners, Hugo and Brigitte Eppich, have recently placed their 7,000 square foot house on the market, this may be your last opportunity to see this sparkling marvel inside and out, and in the company of the original clients and its design associate, Nick Milkovich.

This “eppich” event, sponsored by the Arthur Erickson Foundation as a fundraiser for its programs, will feature fine wine and delicious food, plus a live jazz combo. The reception and tour will take place from 4 pm to 8 pm, with last outside stroll of the Cornelia Hahn Oberlander-designed garden at 6 pm. There will also be live music, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. 

Admission is $500 for one person plus guest, which includes refreshments, AEF membership, a $400 tax receipt ($300 if bringing a guest) and a copy of the Greg Bellerby’s new book, “Eppich House II: The Story of an Arthur Erickson Masterwork” published by Figure 1. Valet parking is available, and the address and map for access will be issued upon purchase of a ticket.

The event has also received coverage in Western Living Magazine.
