1903, she took a correspondence course in architectural drafting and worked on several Hebbard & Gill projects.

The Lee and Teats houses also appear to be the first experiments in an area that Gill later became known for: innovative multiple residential designs. Originally one piece of property, the three houses were connected by a U-shaped pergola around a shared garden. Today they are individually owned private residences.

Rev. Frederick & Mary Cossitt House, 1906 3526 Seventh Avenue

Hebbard & Gill This beautiful two-story home with its original red sandstone retaining walls is one of the premier residences from the firm of Hebbard & Gill. Designed as a series of receding and enlarging cubic shapes with broad flat eaves, the emerging influence of the Prairie Style and the modern trends of Gill’s later work can be seen. The interior features extensive use of redwood paneling, a large inglenook that broadens into a living room with a high ceiling, and clerestory windows. The Cossitts were frequent clients of Gill with numerous commissions, including rental properties.

Arthur & Elsa Marston House, 1909 3575 Seventh Avenue

Irving J. Gill George Marston sold this property in April of 1908 to his son Arthur, who had become vice president of the Marston Company, and his daughter-in- law, Elsa. Like his father, Arthur hired Irving Gill, who was no longer with William Hebbard by this time; the home was completed in December of 1909.

Typical Gill features such as a boxy shape, casement windows, and recessed arched entry can be seen and although Gill produced several presentation renderings for the home with most showing a stucco finish, the Marstons kept to the family’s fondness for red brick. In 1929 and 1930, Irving Gill’s nephew, Louis Gill, who had been his partner from 1914 to 1919, designed a north wing addition and the separate garage with apartment above.
