Carmel, Cal. 1957- Studied at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. He was in joint practice with his brother Henry Mather Greene in Pasadena and Los Angeles, 1894-1922, then independently in Carmel, Cal. The houses of Greene & Greene were from the beginning stamped with the handicraft ideal of the Arts & Crafts movement. At the highpoint of their extensive ceuvre stand the Blacker House (1907) and the Gamble House (1908-9), both in Pasadena, which, with their interpenetration of interior and exterior space, their projecting roofs, their flat gables, their warm materials (wood, shingle-clad walls, stained-glass windows) and highly elaborated details, are among the best examples of a Californian version of Art Nouveau, inspired by the japonisme of the epoch.
