A house designed by Canadian architect Arthur Erickson has just hit the market for $12.8 million.

The West Vancouver home is owned by co-founder of metal manufacturer Ebco Industries Hugo Eppich and his wife, Brigitte. The couple and their three children moved into the home in 1988, Bloomberg reported. Now in their 80s, the couple feels the roughly 6,000-square-foot home is too big for them.

Eppich commissioned Erickson to design his home after the architect designed the home of his twin brother Helmut, the other co-founder of Ebco. The homes, however, were not identical: Helmut’s home was made of concrete, while his brother opted for steel and chrome.

Owning a steel and chrome fabricator, of course, helped Hugo Eppich save money on the home’s construction.

“It took a long time,” he said, “but we could do all the steel fabrication and electroplating on our own.”

His control over the materials also gave Erickson free reign on the home’s design. The architect reportedly referred to the project as his “most complete work.”
