Irving Gill Miltimore Residence
Salon and Refreshments
Sunday, April 15, 2018
The date is set! Join us for the SAH/SCC Salon to be held at the Catherine Miltimore Residence (Irving J. Gill, 1911). The Miltimore Residence is one of the architect’s few remaining untouched masterworks and will be the site of an exclusive conversation with the most recent stewards of the property. We will explore the house’s architectural significance as well the legacy of its most recent owner, a painter and artist.
The Miltimore Residence expresses the beautiful simplicity of Gill’s early modernist aesthetic and focus on efficiency. Beautifully proportioned, the vast expanses of unadorned plaster are punctuated by large casement windows that look out upon luxuriously landscaped grounds. The house also features what Gill called a “green room” – trellis structures covered with vines supported by minimalist columns.
In plan, the public rooms of the house are all on the first floor with multiple access points to a rear terrace through the living and dining room. The private spaces/bedrooms elevated to the second floor and accessed off a central stair.
The Miltimore House is, without question, one of the most intact Irving Gill-designed residences in existence.
If you enjoyed the SAH/SCC’s 2016 Irving Gill Los Angeles House Tour and/or our visit to the University of California, Santa Barbara’s (UCSB)’s anniversary exhibit, Irving J. Gill: Simplicity and Reform, this event is for you.
This event is open to SAH/SCC MEMBERS ONLY. As a thank you to our Life and Patron-level members, tickets will be made available first to these members then expanded to the full SAH/SCC membership.
