dancing with architecture: some Irving Gills in San Diego and La Jolla
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Whilst in San Diego, we were fortunate enough to hook up with Steve Wallet, a San Diego architect with a massive interest in Schindler and cats (we get along great!). In fact, he was kind enough to give us a copy of his first Small Moments book of cartoons!
After catching up on Schindler gossip and talking about landscaping and water, Steve gave us some tips on touring Irving Gills, specifically the Marston House, an early Gill; houses across the street from the Marston House, and a bed and breakfast in La Jolla (I mentioned wanting to get inside a Gill).
Across the street from the Marston House are several smaller houses designed by Gill in various styles.
Wallet noted that there's a bed and breakfast in La Jolla in a Gill: It's called the Inn at La Jolla at 7753 Draper Avenue.
Nearby there are several Gill designed buildings, including the Women's Club.
