DESCRIPTION OF THE HISTORIC PLACE
Shalal Gardens consists of four identical apartment quadruplexes that were constructed in 1951 as part of the Capilano Highlands development in the Highlands neighbourhood of the District of North Vancouver. Each building featured a complex pinwheel design anchored with high projecting Roman brick walls, with separate entries and a walled garden for each unit. Planar stucco cladding, dark encircling beltcourses, ribbon and corner windows, and projecting second floor screens characterize the design of Shalal Gardens.
HERITAGE VALUE OF THE HISTORlC PLACE
Designed by celebrated local architect, Fred Thornton Hollingsworth, Shalal Gardens is valued as an early and premier example of West Coast Modern architecture. Exemplified by design innovation, advancing architectural technologies, use of natural materials, and sensitive integration with the natural environment, the West Coast Style of architecture was prevalent between 1945 and 1970. This was an era of post-war optimism, prosperity, growth, and pent-up demand for new housing. Shalal Gardens is a significant representation of this new modem architecture, and was developed as part of Capilano Highlands, a new suburban community that provided different forms of housing and a central selfcontained shopping area and amenities. The inclusion of this type of apartment within a suburban development was considered progressive at the time. The symmetrical pinwheel design of Shalal Gardens was also considered innovative for its organic sense of space, with double-height living spaces and ingenious and complex layouts. The window arrangement ensured complete privacy between each unit. Light-coloured stucco cladding, dark encircling beltcourses, and ribbon and corner windows were used to modulate the mass of the structures.
