Follow the process of a new home constructed in the style of the early 1900s architect brothers Greene & Greene. We will use many of the Greene brothers style elements to honor their vision.
Most Greene & Greene homes are found primarily in Pasadena and in a few other California towns such as Carmel, Ojai, and Berkeley.
As we build our home in the style of Greene and Greene, we find ourselves explaining to friends the various elements that will define our home, it is quite unusual yet beautiful. If you have lived in Pasadena then you know the details...as do most architects. But in this time of Pinterest and houzz.com many new people are being introduced to the Craftsman style and Greene and Greene in particular. Once you have been bitten you want more information, more pictures, more ideas on how to do the kitchens and baths that fit today's lifestyles without abandoning the essence of a G & G home. With this post I will give you a brief synopsis of the Greene brothers work, their elements of style, and what lies ahead on our project this year.
