Homewood House £580

John Hopkins University, Baltimore
Designer: Charles Carroll, Jr

Limited Edition: 100

With his design for the Villa Barbaro, Palladio showed how incorporating service and storage sections into a formal composition could make a villa an impressive architectural statement.

The Villa Barbaro’s five-part format became the prototype for numerous 18th- and 19th-century high-style residences throughout the eastern United States. This five-part layout is elegantly expressed in Homewood, the suburban villa of Charles Carroll, Jr.

While its form is Palladian, Homewood’s refined detailing is Adamesque, making the house a demonstration of Palladianism expressed with a different Classical vocabulary. Homewood was largely planned by Carroll himself, who was well-educated and well-informed on the subject of architecture. Much of Homewood’s detailing is based on illustrations in English pattern books by William Pain, including Pain’s British Palladio.

Homewood is now a museum owned and administered by Johns Hopkins University.
