A brief history of Arts and Crafts Movement (1880-1920) and Artistic Bungalow The “Movement” initially developed in England during the latter half of the 19th Century, subsequently taken up in North America and beyond was a back-lash to the shoddy, machine made materials of the Industrial Revolution. The iconic Arts and Crafts Bungalow was often designed for use as summer homes and retreats by the lake or sea, ascribing to the Movement’s artistic naturalism philosophy and use of verandas, porches and many, large windows in keeping with precepts of craftsmanship, dignity and harmony with nature.
