Low profile, high foundation. A bungalows distinction is its low profile. There are no vertical bungalows even though in a few cities such as Sacramento, Seattle and Vancouver, British Columbia, the basically horizontal house type is raised on high foundations. Promotional literature in the early 20th century almost always noted the chief purpose of the bungalow: to place most of the living spaces on one floor.
Bungalows became larger and took on Western Arts and Crafts style while maintaining the original Eastern shape. Now, you will find that they often overlap with Craftsman house plans, but they are typically capped at one or 1.5 stories.
From the East the idea spread westward. Naturally, California – in everyones mind the ultimate resort – was a promising locale for bungalows. Land was relatively cheap, and the possibility of affordable and comfortable housing was attractive to the young on the make, the sick on the mend, and the old on modest pensions.
From 1891 the Federation Bungalow style swept across Australia, first in Camberwell, Victoria, and through Sydney northern suburbsafter 1895. The developer Richard Stanton built in Federation Bungalow style first in Haberfield, New South Wales, the first Garden Suburb (1901), and then in Rosebery, New South Wales (1912). Beecroft, Hornsby and Lindfield contain many examples of Federation Bungalows built between 1895 and 1920.
