Brothers Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene built one of their more notable works, the Gamble House, in 1908. It is a three-story structure and a common example of America’s Arts and Craft movement from the early part of the 20th Century. The Arts and Craft movement incorporated local handcrafted wood, glass, metal work and other natural materials. The interiors were built using multiple kinds of wood that range from teak, maple, oak, and mahogany. The Gamble House is a good example of how the Greene brothers found inspiration in Japanese Architecture, which is apparent throughout the exterior of the home.
