The Saraceno family commissioned Palladio to design this Villa in the Provence of Vicenza Italy. The building itself is dated around 1540 and so is considered to be one of Palladio's earlier works. Although the design was featured in Palladio's “I Quattro Libri dell' Architecttura” the constructed version of Villa Saraceno was much more modest; for instance instead of wings being added, the original farm buildings were retained.

This Timothy Richards scale façade model would make a beautiful statement piece for any living room, office or study as a memento of the work of the great Andrea Palladio.

The Saraceno family commissioned Palladio to design this Villa in the Provence of Vicenza Italy. The building itself is dated around 1540 and so is considered to be one of Palladio’s earlier works. Although the design was featured in Palladio’s “I Quattro Libri dell’ Architecttura” the constructed version of Villa Saraceno was much more modest; for instance instead of wings being added, the original farm buildings were retained. As with other Palladian villas, the buildings combine a living space for wealthy owners with something suited to agricultural needs i.e. above the piano nobile is a granary space which keeps the grain cool and dry.

The model was commissioned in 2007 by the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America as a prize to be awarded at the Arthur Ross Awards 2008. The recipient of the prize was Mr Alvin Holm A.I.A.
