Spanish Revival homes became popular during the 1920s following the Panama-California Exposition, in San Diego from 1915-1917 where buildings were built using a mix of influences: Spanish Baroque, Spanish Colonial and Moorish Revival. The new homes based on these were named Spanish Colonial Revival. They had classic Spanish features on the exterior: white stucco walls, red terracotta roof tiles, wrought iron gates and window grilles and carved entry doors.
This Greek Revival house was designed and built in 1936 by Hal Hentz, of Hentz, Adler and Shutze. It was Hentz's residence in Atlanta. Hentz was originally from Florida and studied at Emory College in Oxford, Georgia. He studied architecture with Neel Reid, his eventual partner, at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He also studied architecture at Columbia University. Owned by Keith Summerour.
