Paul Rudolph & Ralph Twitchell, 1948

Recently restored, the Revere House is again a paradigm of indoor/outdoor Florida living. The screened porch, with grass inside, is as much a useful living space as the living room that opens with large sliding glass doors (a radical innovation at the time). The innovative concrete roof on steel pipe columns and the freestanding walls slipping inside and out are reflected in the new main house. The new expansive spaces and views complement the garden experience of the historic building.
