Spanish Architecture in Pasadena

As the proud owner of a 1928 Spanish Colonial Revival home, I never tire of them. Every one I have come across in the Pasadena area has been unique and well-constructed with lots of character and charm. This type of architecture was born as a result of the Panama-California Exposition, and became a U.S. style movement from 1915 to 1931. It is a hybrid style based on the architecture found during the early Spanish colonization of North and South America.

This style started in California and Florida, which has the ideal climate for Mediterranean-inspired-homes, and remains popular today. In Spanish Revival architecture, new features were added to classic ones to create a distinct look. Let’s explore some of the exterior elements which define this style.
