1551 Hawthorne, Berkeley

William Clement Ambrose was a California native who received his architecture degree from Berkeley and then went on to work in the office of Willis Polk before striking out on his own. He worked in a range of styles throughout his career, but the home we feature today is a particularly idiosyncratic Spanish colonial revival. It is full of surprising details and unexpected flourishes around every corner, but despite all of its individuality, it still manages to retain the convincingly unified feeling of a large and rambling Spanish hacienda.
