The Eppich House II
by Architect
Arthur Erickson
The Eppich house was designed in 1979 for Hugo Eppich, founder of Ebco Industries. Hugo and Helmut Eppich were brothers that immigrated to Canada from Slovenia in the 1950s and together they built Ebco, one of Canada's largest most successful machinery fabricators, that further expanded and became renowned for steel fabrication.

When Hugo commissioned Arthur Erickson to design his house Arthur was given a free hand with no hard design or budget constraints. He utilized the Ebco industry expertise in steel to build a monumental three-storey steel structure that would become one of the most iconic residences of British Columbia.
Set on a Hillside
The home is set into a steep hillside with a meandering natural creek that forms the reflecting pool around the home. Arthur wanted to build a house that rolled along the slope of the site. The three-story layered structure stands proud on the West Vancouver hillside and offers stunning ocean views from above.
Modern Custom Designed Furnishing
The interior design followed a colour theme of red and yellow inspired by the art collection in the home.
Every piece of furniture was custom designed and built specifically for this home using a combination of stainless steel, glass and leather.. The intention was to create a space that was unique and one-of-a-kind, and with the resources available from Hugo's steel and fabrication plants, this was entirely achievable.
A Terraced Layout with Stunning Views
The interiors were designed as 6,000 square feet of terraced levels that open up to the views. The layout accommodated separate sections for the parents and the children.
Radiant Interior Spaces
An abundance of natural light flows through the house from the curved glass brick exterior and the glass windows that run along the entire length of the home, highlighting the exceptional views. The home is perched high up and surrounded by lush foliage that give it complete privacy.
Separate Carriage House
The property includes a quaint carriage house that sits on the edge of the reflecting pool that flows through the property. This landmark was built in 1979 and has been since featured in architecture, design and home magazines around the globe.
Iconic Curved Glass Walls
The curved glass brick walls looking out towards the ocean are iconic to this legendary home. Steel frames retain the expansive glazed envelope and roll down the slope of the site. The building was designed to withstand the test of time and last over a hundred years.
A Timeless Masterpiece
Come rain or sunshine, this beautiful and iconic residence remains an architectural wonder that stands the test of time.
