The Italian Renaissance style is perfect for the grandeur of early 20th century Swiss Avenue. The Italian Renaissance style also reflects the Beaux-Arts influence of 1900s mansions. These classically proportioned houses often had Palladian arch windows and doors on the first floor and smaller rectangular windows on the second floor. The design of these homes, allowing a great amount of sunlight and terraces, are not as symmetrical as the Georgian style homes and some of the other styles of homes found on Swiss Avenue.
Swiss Avenue is where the oldest architecturally significant homes are found. Twenty-first century architects are still inspired by these homes, like this one designed by C.W. Bulger. See More
