Charles and Henry Greene took an intensely artistic approach to the design of houses and interiors within the Arts and Crafts movement, creating some of the most beautiful residences in the history of domestic architecture. This documentary chronicles the lives of these brothers, from their early efforts to blend American, European, and Asian design concepts, through the creation of their masterworks of the years 1908-1910, to the independent projects of their latter years. The production features more than fifteen residences, including the Blacker and Gamble houses in Pasadena, the Adelaide Tichenor house in Long Beach, the Charles Pratt house in Ojai, the William Thorson house in Berkeley, the D.L. James house in Carmel, and the Walter Richardson house in Porterville. This documentary also examines the Greenes' passionate interest in creating fully planned living environments. Woodwork, furniture, lighting fixtures, tile, rugs, and art glass are all included.
