Cliff May-Inspired Modern Plans
Cliff May was the most famous popularizer of the suburban ranch house, which took the country by storm after World War II and came to embody California living. Horizontality, emphatic indoor-outdoor connections, and a romantic modernity are part of this design approach. The designs in this collection were inspired in varying degrees by May's ranch house designs. For more on May see the book Cliff May and the Modern Ranch House, by Daniel Gregory (editor of this website), published by Rizzoli in 2008.
