Bernard Maybeck is best known today for his woodsy First Bay Region homes but he was by no means a stylistic puritan. Quite the contrary, he was above all else an innovator who loved to experiment not only with style, but also with form and technique. The home we feature today is one of his lesser known ventures into Mediterranean architecture which came into vogue as part of the Period Revival shift that took place after World War I. Here Maybeck demonstrates his clear grasp of the style while still managing to make it his own with plenty of creative flourishes and one of his trademark massive concrete fireplaces.
