Significance: The Melville Klauber House is a significant example of the work of Irving J. Gill, showing the transition from his formative period to his mature style. The Klauber family was one of San Diego's early pioneers (dating to 1869); succeeding generations have continued to contribute to San Diego's commercial and cultural life. / The Melville Klauber House, designed by Irving John Gill of the Gill & Mead partnership, in 1907, is a noteworthy example of Gill's work during the transition from his formative period to his mature architectural style. Gill was on the threshold of developing his mature style noted for its emphasis on simple, dominating cubical forms. By combining detailing used extensively in his later work with building forms of the previous phase, this fine residence exemplifies Gill's change in architectural expression. One notable feature in the house is the handsome stairway which leads from the first to third floor.
