Il Cortile, A New House in Palm Beach
Palm Beach, FL
This Mediterranean-style subtropical house, known as ‘Il Cortile’, centers on a courtyard in the tradition of many early Palm Beach houses.
The attainment of a timeless authenticity through the use of well-crafted, robust and honest materials was the established intent from early in the design process. The exterior of the house is a stucco finish with dimension limestone details that are recessed into the wall structure. Other prominent exterior features include painted wood windows, doors and shutters, limed cypress rafter tails and a roof of green glazed clay tiles with flat pans and barrel caps.
