Wimberley House by Cunningham Architects- this 5,000 sq ft house effectively separates private from public areas with an L-shaped plan and a material change from glass to stained cement board. Locally sourced building materials and rain water collection add a sustainable element.
Italianate Victorian homes were a blend of formal and classical styles, inspired by country villas from the Old World. They were built in rectangular sections to imitate the look of Italian-style villas. The arches of traditional Roman architecture were combined with the detail that became possible with new construction technology of the time. Common features include large porches with decorative eaves, paired arched windows, Corinthian columns, flat or low pitched roofs, central tower or cupola
Moats and boats and waterfalls, Alley ways & pay phone calls I’ve been everywhere with you. We laugh until we think we’ll die, Barefoot on a summer night Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you.
