Gamble House Double Doors Historical Inspiration

The Gamble House

This photo is an exterior view of "The Gamble House, Pasadena, California, by Charles and Henry Greene, 1908 (photo: 2005, after restoration)." By en:User:Mr. Exuberance (en:User:Mr. Exuberance) [GFDL ( or CC-BY-SA-3.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons

Originally intended as a winter residence for David and Mary Gamble (and Jeremy Case), the three-story Gamble House is commonly described as America's Arts and Crafts masterpiece.  Its style shows influence from traditional Japanese aesthetics and a certain California spaciousness born of available land and a permissive climate. The Arts and Crafts Movement in American Craftsman style architecture was focused on the use of natural materials, attention to detail, aesthetics, and craftsmanship.

The house is located on a grassy knoll on a Pasadena Arroyo. Because of the Gambles attraction to the environment, Greene designed the house to compliment the rustic setting. The house's design reflected the Gambles' love of nature as flowers and trees were brought to the interior—creating pictures in wood, metal, art glass, and semi-precious stone. The building itself appears as if growing from the landscape, achieved by a blend of man-made and natural materials such as vines covering the house from the ground up.
