The award-winning conservation of the Gamble House was the first comprehensive preservation effort for this national historic landmark, designed in 1908 by Charles and Henry Greene. It is the only project designed by the Greene brothers to remain substantially in original condition, with all of its architect designed furnishings still in situ. The architects were deeply involved in every aspect of the design and handcrafted construction while closely directing highly skilled crafts workers. The Gamble House is, in fact, a museum where the house is treated as the most precious artifact in its collection. Conservation treatments were developed with an ongoing maintenance plan. The project team continues to monitor historic materials and performance of treatments implemented in 2004.
