1007-11 Hancock Avenue

The building at 1007-1011 Hancock Avenue is part of the City’s Craftsman District. The Craftsman style of architecture is characterized by simplified detailing and exposed structure elements. The Craftsman bungalow, due to its emphasis on nature and simplicity, was one of the most prominent residential styles in Southern California. The mild climate and interest in simple living combined to make the style attractive to all residents in the region, from the wealthy who built large, outstanding examples, such as the Gamble House, to the working class, who built homes that incorporated simpler versions of the same elements.
