Liliore Green Rains Houses, one of Stanford’s largest housing complexes, accommodates 800 single students in two- and four-bedroom apartments clustered around lawns and courtyards.

With red tile roofs, sand-colored stucco walls, small circular windows and arcades, the award-winning Rains Houses recall traditional California mission architecture, but with a postmodern interpretation.

When designing buildings in clusters extending over 12 acres of lawns and courtyards, Architects Backen, Arrigoni and Ross incorporated fragments of the Hacienda, an adobe winery built in 1875 by Peter Coutts. By employing elements such as a semicircular pergola, a fountain and a restored white-brick Buttery, the architects added a unique historical feel to the complex.

Named for its benefactress, Liliore Green Rains Houses opened to students in 1988.
