    MAYBECK'S SENGER HOUSE

    "Ring in the love of truth and right [...] Ring in the thousand years of peace" —"In Memoriam"

    These lines, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, are inscribed into the Senger House's baronially scaled fireplace and set the mood for this remarkable dwelling. Medieval Teutonic imagery is stenciled throughout the house and carved into overscaled architectural woodwork — a Maybeckian evocation of his client, a professor of German at the nearby University of California. — Published 2013.0327

    WILLIAM WURSTER - HOUSES

    Thinking back, an image that most endures in my mind is the white tower and compound of William Wurster's Gregory House (1929) in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    The Gregory Farmhouse, as it's usually referenced, is a misnomer: it is a country retreat designed and built between 1927 and 1929, a place of the soul, no doubt, for a very sophisticated San Francisco family. — Published 2011.1130

    CALIFORNIA HOUSES OF GORDON DRAKE

    Over and over again, Gordon Drake declared that it was his avowed intention to design decent homes for people on minimum budgets. It is natural enough, therefore, that he will be best remembered for his small homes designed for California living.

    One kind of assessment of his work can be approached through looking at the things that he used. — Published 2011.0713

    HAITI EARTHQUAKE LOOKING FOR LESSONS

    Is the lesson of the January 2010 Haiti earthquake simply about poverty? Poverty and a lack of building regulation seem to be the main culprits identified in most media coverage to date. But ArchitectureWeek thinks there's more to the quake than that. — Editor — Published 2010.0407

    ESHERICK'S CARY HOUSE

    The Cary House in Mill Valley, California (1961) was a pivotal project for Joseph Esherick, gathering in the experience and the formal explorations of the gable and chalet manners and looking forward to the single-slope roofs that became the icon of the Sea Ranch style. — Published 2010.0203

    SUPER SEISMIC MEDICAL CENTER

    The Mills-Peninsula Medical Center, currently under construction in Burlingame, California, will be the first "base-isolated" hospital in northern California.

    Built on isolator bearings with seismic dampers, the building was designed by Anshen + Allen to remain operational after a major seismic event. During an earthquake, the building can move up to 30 inches (76 centimeters) horizontally and two inches (five centimeters) vertically without incurring major damage. — Published 2008.0514

    CLASSIC HOME 040

    "It...is a fairly simple box, elaborated by the eyelashes and eyebrows of overhangs which soften the transition from the simple box to the bright light of the outside. There, I think, for the first time in several centuries, the windows came clearly to be seen not just as walls of glass as in earlier houses, nor as holes in solid walls, as in still earlier ones, but rather variously as chances to pick up light along a wall or floor or to look at a view through an opening shaded by trellises, each window responding to the special aspects of what lay beyond or the quality of entering light." — Published 2002.1030

    BERNARD MAYBECK: VISIONARY ARCHITECT

    The ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement are now so enshrined that their originally avant-garde position in turn-of-the-century culture is easily forgotten. Enclaves of artists and artisans throughout the state of California felt the exhilaration of charting a fresh aesthetic course that touched life as well as art. — Published 2001.0328
