Mediterranean house plans draw inspiration from Moorish, Italian, and Spanish architecture. Mediterranean style homes usually have stucco or plaster exteriors with shallow red tile roofs that create shady overhangs. Along with large windows and exposed beams, Mediterranean style homes include patios or loggias to catch breezes. Among the most famous Mediterranean homes are those designed by Santa Barbara architect George Washington Smith in the 1920s.
