Staples Residence, 1966
West Vancouver, BC
Designed by Bruno Freschi with Erickson/ Massey Architects
Renovated by Bruno Freschi with Nick Milkovich Architects, 2015

Listed as a “Primary Building” on the West Vancouver Survey of Significant Architecture (1945-1975)
Added to the West Vancouver Heritage Register in 2012, by resolution of Council

On the market again with a twist! Designed by Bruno Freschi while working for Erickson/ Massey Architects in 1966, the Staples Residence is quintessentially west coast modern. Originally built for the late Tom and Nancy Staples, this home is defined by its use of natural materials and a skeletal timber frame that acts both as structure and sculpture, providing an openness and seamless integration with its site and the surrounding natural environment. The twist? In 2015, the home underwent a revitalization under the supervision of Bruno Freschi, with a planned expansion of the site in association with Nick Milkovich Architects, exemplifying not only the continued value of these west coast modern gems, but also the incredible opportunity to build upon, rather than replace them.

Featured in the 2012 film “Coast Modern.”
