Gamble House

a film by Don Hahn

The Story

The Gamble House is the incredible story of brothers Charles and Henry Greene who were pushed reluctantly into architecture by their forceful father only to design and build the most seminal and stunning Arts & Crafts house in America. The house, however, did not come without its price, both personally and professionally, for the Greene brothers, and David and Mary Gamble who commissioned it. It’s a tale of American craftsmanship, international influence, artistic frustration, loss, and triumph, which led to the completion of one of the shining examples of American architecture, known to fans of Back to the Future as Doc Brown’s house, and fans of architecture simply as The Gamble House.

“This house represents the American Dream, built out of wood, and stone, and glass.”

“He told them everything; who to consort with, what societies to join in order to get clients… He told them what to do, I think all their lives.”
