"Built at a time when [architects] weren't doing attached housing concepts, Irving Gill's Horatio West Court features four units on a 60-foot lot—a great example of New Urbanism. Gill's ability to use old and new, to interpret and reshape ideas, is what separates his work. It is probably [why] we are still drawn to his designs; we all face the task of weaving a new fabric into an existing community."
- David Smith, principal and director of design at Irvine, Calif.-based Thomas P. Cox Architects
