What Houzz contributors are saying:

This view from one house's tower highlights the great Italian architect Aldo Rossi's Variance house from 1997. As Thadani points out, this may have been the last project Rossi designed (or at least realized) before his untimely death later the same year. Through architecture and highly influential writings, Rossi argued for archetypal forms (gables, porticos etc.), believing they are embedded in the collective memory of societies. He often sketched beach cabanas, so it's fitting that one of his last projects would find a home near the gulf, surrounded by architects exploring the same ideas he spent his career expounding.
