Combining classical elements inspired by the architecture of Andrea Palladio with those recalling the romantic character of the Mediterranean Revival, this 12,800-square-foot (1189-square-meter) house pays homage to and enhances the extraordinary streetscape of New Orleans’ Saint Charles Avenue. Inspired by Palladio’s Basilica in Vicenza, the facade features a single-story portico with a cut-stone arcade and a balustrade terrace above. Offset by the overall simplicity of the facade, the portico’s effect is dramatic without overshadowing the surrounding architecture. Located on a corner, the house has a secondary facade with picturesque Mediterranean Revival features, including iron gates, a second-story pergola, and a tower. Accommodating the clients’ art collection, Ken Tate’s interior plan combines smooth plaster walls and simple casings with adorned ceilings, including groin and barrel vaults, beams, and paneling.
