Remodeling Projects That Fit Your Home’s Architecture – Mediterranean Style Home
Mediterranean Revival Style – AKA “Mission” or “California mission”
Mediterranean revival style homes are usually clad in adobe-like stucco, with a flat or low-pitch roof made of clay tiles. They also feature design elements like porticos, balconies and ornamental details such as heavy wooden doors and multicolored tiles. Their popularity began around the 1920’s and has resurged in recent years. They are most often found in California and throughout the Southwest.
