Title: GA (Global Architecture), Greene & Greene: David B. Gamble House, Pasadena, California. 1908. 

The Gamble House, also known as David B. Gamble House, is a National Historic Landmark, a California Historical Landmark, and museum in Pasadena, California. It was designed by brothers Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene of the architectural firm Greene & Greene and constructed 1908–09 as a home for David B. Gamble of the Procter & Gamble company.

Originally intended as a winter residence for David and Mary Gamble, the three-story Gamble House is commonly described as America's Arts and Crafts masterpiece. Its style shows influence from traditional Japanese aesthetics and a certain California spaciousness born of available land and a permissive climate. The Arts and Crafts Movement in American Craftsman Style architecture was focused on the use of natural materials, attention to detail, aesthetics, and craftsmanship.
