lvU U tI i- ARCHITEC- TURE is espe- cially suitable for our semi-tropic, Orientally - col- ored, Western land: Many o f Mr. Gill's houses have carried out this quality, even to the extent of roof gardens from which the beauty of the setting sun may be enjoyed to the fullest. The home of Homer Laughlin, Los Angeles, was designed before the overhang of roof was discard- ed. THE SPANISH IN- FLUENCE is obvious in this house, thus local traditions are preserved for the delight of future generations. T h e conventional hanging roof of the Webster home of San Diego, shown at the right, is used in con- formity to the require- ments of typical Span- ish architecture: The red tile roof, arched windows and doorways carry out the same idea.
