Front Elevation Detail
Julius Rehn Weber House in San Francisco, California

Above the front door of this sophisticated 1902 rowhouse is a lovely Palladian window and stepped balcony.  Architect Ernest Coxhead playfully extended the interior steps and landings beyond the window base, resulting in this clever exterior expression of interior space.  Beyond this central bay, Coxhead kept decoration to a minimum.  But even in this elaborate bay, one may see signs of restraint.  Note his understated treatment of window trim (almost invisible in the side lites), and his omission of all corner trim.  The Shingle Style was often quite progressive in these respects.  Photograph taken in 1999 by Howard J. Partridge.
