About this title


Takes a look at the work and the lives of the architects Charles and Henry Greene who were famous for their work using the Craftsman style

From the Inside Flap:

Culminating twenty years of new research on California's most famous architects of the Craftsman style.

This comprehensive overview of the architectural careers of Charles and Henry Greene culminates twenty years of new research by Randell Makinson, the foremost authority on their works.

Greene and Greene and California's most famous architects of the Craftsman style. Their projects here are organized into recognizable periods and styles, beginning in 1894 in Pasadena, rising to their masterworks created from 1907 to 1909, and culminating in their separate but cooperative careers in the teens, with Charles practicing in Carmel and Henry remaining in Pasadena.

"It is the yin and yang that the brothers brought to each project which is cause for that undeniable spirit pervading each of their joint works," says Makinson.

The Greene brothers' sensual blending of architecture, landscape, interiors, furnishings, and the decorative arts is the hallmark of their Craftsman style. Color photography throughout highlights their furniture and lighting designs as well as their classic bungalow exteriors. Also included are some important archival images and plans.
