VANCOUVER, November 10, 2023 – West Coast Modern announces today that it is listing the Fred Hollingsworth-designed Lantern House for sale in North Vancouver. An early example of West Coast Modernism, the 1950-built house is one of the few remaining homes designed by Hollingsworth and is one of the only private residences in Canada to be personally blessed by the Dalai Lama.

“Major modernist architects like Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Arthur Erikson took design inspiration from Japan — and Fred Hollingsworth was no different,” says Trent Rodney, co-founder of West Coast Modern. “With Lantern House, Hollingsworth draws on the Japanese principles of wabi-sabi, which seeks to eliminate unnecessary objects and find beauty in humble, unadorned materials.”

Located at 825 Forest Hills Drive in North Vancouver’s Edgemont Village neighborhood, Lantern House features five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms on three levels in 8,625 square feet. Exposed wood beams and large windows blur the line between inside and the greenery and Japanese pond outside. The spacious 3,865-square-foot design is twice the size of other modern homes thanks to a 2000 renovation that saw Hollingsworth’s son, Russell, gracefully add a second floor to the house.

Born in England and based in Vancouver, Fred Hollingsworth was a strong advocate of “truth” in architecture – a preference for natural or locally produced materials and the belief that homes should fit their natural surroundings (“of them, not of them”). Through his collection of modern homes, Hollingsworth sought to articulate his vision of the modern home – a repetitive post-and-beam design, customizable for every family and in harmony with nature.

The previous owners were drawn to the home by its tranquility and the healing properties of its design, and they invited the Dalai Lama to bless the home during his 2014 visit to Vancouver.

“The Lantern House is rooted in its natural surroundings as if it were growing directly from the slopes of North Vancouver,” continues Rodney. “It is a quiet base from which to approach the world and is ready to heal the next guardian.”

Introducing the Lantern House, a poetic embodiment of West Coast architecture that connects the local, the far, and beyond. Located in the prized village of Edgemont, the home is a testament to architect Fred Hollingsworth’s Neutric Homes, echoing the ideals of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Built in 1950 and elegantly expanded in 2000 by Russell Hollingsworth, the renovation honored the home’s core structure and spine. Exposed wood beams define the flow through the intimate and spacious interiors, where each space is a tranquil reflection of Japanese simplicity and extends into a green, outdoor sanctuary.

The living spaces are tranquil, bathed in natural light that flows through the stained glass and picture windows. With the blessing of the Dalai Lama himself, this radiant abode is searching for a new guardian.
