California Ranch Homes
My final project for my space planning class is to design a 1200 square foot (or smaller) renovated 60's era ranch-style house, including a elevation drawing of the front of the house. Here are some of the exterior inspiration images that I've been collecting. It's been fun.
Cliff May was responsible for getting the ranch house concept rolling in California back in 1931 and in later years, other architects followed suite. Joseph Eichler, a California real estate developer was responsible for building over 11,000 homes from 1947-1973, many of them in the ranch-style.
