What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Greene brothers' mature works, of which the Gamble is a part, clearly exhibit the brothers' love of wood, steeped in an appreciation of Japanese and Swiss architecture. But equally important is how the brothers treated outdoor space. Their floor plans are shaped to embrace the landscape, for one, and on the second floor they incorporated large sleeping porches; in the case of the Gamble House, the latter are positioned over the former, so the terraces receive shade. The combination of sleeping porches and large overhangs gives the house its exterior character, a mix of wood surfaces and deep shadows.

Love the stone walls, I could steal this idea on our hill in front, to add extra room in front of our home on the hill, if we ever enclose the porch.
