Los Angeles is full of beautiful Craftsman houses, but the Gamble House in Pasadena, designed inside and out by brothers Charles and Henry Greene is the cream of the crop. The house was built in 1906 as a summer house for David and Mary Gamble of the Procter and Gamble Company. The house incorporates Japanese elements into a Swiss chalet framework using craftsman techniques. Every detail in the house from the peg wood paneling to the stained glass windows was designed by the brothers, with Charles being responsible for more of the interior details.
The Gamble House is now a museum that can be visited on scheduled tours. Select architecture students from USC get to live in the house as part of an architect in residence program.
Greene and Greene built a number of fine Craftsman homes in the area and a map is available in the gift shop at the house. You can also see Green and Green furnishings on display at the Huntington Library and at the LA County Museum of Art.
