1255 Ridgewood Drive, North Vancouver
The Twin House – one of the first West Coast Modern homes ever built in British Columbia. It was designed by Fred Hollingsworth in 1947 for the Ingram Family as a twin to his own personal residence two doors down, influenced by the organic principles of Frank Lloyd Wright. The Canadian Home & Garden magazine, in 1952, called it “semi-revolutionary.” And it could be credited for starting a surge of mid-century ‘new modern’ houses. It has one of Vancouver’s first open floor plans, one of the first floor-to-ceiling windows, and the first of Hollingsworth’s signature use of unique building materials like concrete blocks and plywood interior walls. An inspiration for tomorrow’s generation is now fully updated and ready for its next custodian. See where it all started.
