Filberg House Recovery

Built in 1958, the Erickson-designed Filberg House in Comox on Vancouver Island is now for sale and a movement is afoot to purchase and preserve it as a conference and gathering centre.

In 1961, Canadian Homes called the Filberg House a masterpiece. Journalist Trevor Boddy describes it as an “airy pavilion-like dwelling,” and goes on to say that, “With the possible exception of the West Vancouver B.C. Binning residence….. the Filberg house has the best integration of modernist house with modernist landscape design in the province. The rolling lawns around the Robert Filberg house are deceiving, as according to Mr. Erickson, they are anything but natural: the slopes, views and shapes of the entire bluff-top landscape were altered by the client working closely with the architect."
