A TWO-PERSON crew from Japanese TV got some footage at the Arthur Erickson-designed Filberg House in Comox.

House interests Japanese

A two-person crew spent the day photographing the Filberg House for the Tokyo's Broadcasting System's One X Time

It’s been featured in magazines, fashion campaigns and even a university weather sciences video, but Thursday, the Arthur Erickson-designed Filberg House played host to a Japanese film crew.

The two-person crew spent the day photographing the house for the Tokyo’s Broadcasting System’s One X Time, a documentary series focusing on architecture.

“It is really cool location-wise,” said Kazu Ueda, producer/co-ordinator for the show.

“I didn’t expect to see the ocean so close to the house.”

Ueda, along with photographer/videographer Yoshi Nacho, spent the day in the Comox home after researching mid-century architects online from Japan.

“We found out about Arthur Erickson and this house about two months ago, and it worked really well,” he explained. “We wanted to feature 1950s’ modern architecture.”

We have a second crew in Chicago photographing the Frank Lloyd Wright house and have five houses in total to photograph; three are Erickson houses.”

Following their stopover on the Island, the pair visited homes in West Vancouver, and will spend about a week in total in Canada.

Ueda said the show is scheduled to air in Japan around the end of September or beginning of October.
