|Gamble house - Pasadena, California (1908) |
The elegant houses designed by Charles and Henry Greene have come to define the arts and crafts movement in the United States. A seamless fusion of simplicity and sophisticated detail with meticulous attention to building materials and natural surroundings, each Greene and Greene house is a model of timeless home design.
Other architects have enjoyed more famous careers. Many others have produced more buildings. But no other architects have left us with a more glowing legacy of beauty, craft, livability, and spirit than Charles and Henry Greene.
