Pitcarin House Westridge Girls School, Pasadena

Pitcairn House, one of the oldest and most architecturally-significant buildings at Westridge School. Work on the building will remain true to the design elements of Greene & Greene, the renowned architecture firm that built the original Craftsman house in 1906.

One of the most prominent historical buildings in Pasadena, Pitcairn House was pivotal to the evolution of Greene & Greene architectural designs. During its original construction, the Greene brothers developed methods and design elements later used in both the famous Blacker House and the Gamble House. These homes are architectural landmarks in Pasadena history as they combine the influences from the Arts and Crafts movement with Asian architecture and the shingle style to produce the Greene & Greene bungalow homes of the early 1900s.
