Overview

"Work by over 30 leading architects of the Spanish Revival movement in California during the 1920s and '30s is featured in this beautifully illustrated book. Drawn from the era's leading architectural journals, these case studies document the "best of" residential design during this influential era. More than 300 images illustrate authentic Mediterranean aesthetics. Forty-four beautiful homes are featured, each furnished in Mission style and landscaped appropriately for a lifestyle centered around courtyards and conducted beneath shaded verandas. In many cases, the projects include the architects' hand-rendered site and floorplans. The architects and firms featured include: Wallace Neff, Gordon Kaufman, Roland Coate, George Washington Smith, and the firm of Soule, Murphy and Hastings. Each helped to shape the architectural character of the West Coast, and their work continues to inspire today's designers."
