A first-time Tour of Homes at The Villa condominium in Ansley Park will feature 10 homes on the building’s three floors. It will be a rare opportunity to view interiors at the Shutze-designed building, until now seen by only residents and their guests.
The Villa looks like a monument from another time and place, and in many ways it is. The inspiration behind The Villa’s façade comes from 1725, when architect Ferdinando Fuga designed a courtyard entry to the Church of St. Cecilia in Rome. In the 1920s, when Neel Reid and Philip Trammell Schutze designed a luxury apartment house to be called The Italian Villa in Atlanta, the architects drew their inspiration from Fuga’s 200-year-old façade.
