Nice article from the folks at globeandmail.com about the restoration and expansion of an mcm house built in 1956. The architect was Robert R. McKee from Vancouver. There’s practically no info about him online, though the name seems familiar. The expansion was carried out by Nick Milkovich, a frequent collaborator with Arthur Erickson. Wish there were more pics.

This post is bad news/good news. The bad is that we are about to lose another spectacular midcentury house. Located in West Vancouver, British Columbia, the house designed by Arthur Erickson for David Graham in 1962 is on the verge of being brought down by its present owners.
Now for the good news. Another Erickson house, the Filberg Residence, was designed in 1958 and is on the market. This spectacular home looks to be in great shape.
