Two histories are the heart and soul of the William Gird Estate. One is that of an illustrious Old San Diego pioneer family, the Girds. The other is a lively debate swirling about the very origins of Modern architecture in America: how architects Frank Mead and Richard Requa drew on features from exotic cultures they knew (North African dwellings, Moroccan kasbahs, Native American pueblos) to create a new kind of architectural expression, even a new way of dwelling, without abandoning the anchoring motif of Spanish Colonial Revival. Their design skills ensured that the result is a well-choreographed synthesis rather than the cacophony it could have been. In any case, through the apriori thinking of all three, Gill, Mead, and Requa, their many projects, collaborations, and employees helped shape the singular identity of early 20th century greater San Diego and Southern California; many are listed in the National Register of Historic Places orare locally designated. Currently, 5 properties designed by Mead and Requa and 21 by Requa with others have been designated as historic resources, City of San Diego; undoubtedly more will follow. 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1.37 acres, 6 fireplaces, solar panels.
