Spanish Revival Mulhouse Residence

Spanish Revival Architecture became popular during the Eclectic Movement around 1920 and spread rapidly across the southern United states.  The Eclectic styles stressed relatively pure copies of domestic European architecture and was a movement away from the unrestricted stylistic concoctions that had dominated the preceding Victorian era.  It was the Panama-California exposition, held in San Diego in 1915, that introduce this elaborate Spanish style to America.

This home on Mulhouse in Normandy Estates draws its inspiration from the same sources.  An asymmetrical composition and irregular massing of volumes with a judicious application of ornament.  An aesthetic of elegant simplicity.
