This month Evans Roofing President Thierry Devove had the honor of doing an onsite visit of the historical Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, to bid upon an upcoming construction project.
Thierry highly recommends visiting the Museum and Gardens if youre ever in the Biscayne area.
The architecture and craftsmanship of every aspect is quite amazing. A lot of vision, dedication and skill went into bringing this masterpiece together.
The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, previously known as Villa Vizcaya, is the former villa and estate of businessman James Deering, of the Deering McCormick-International Harvester fortune, on Biscayne Bay in the present-day Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami, Florida.
The early 20th century Vizcaya estate also includes extensive Italian Renaissance gardens; native woodland landscape; and a historic village outbuildings compound. The landscape and architecture were influenced by Veneto and Tuscan Italian Renaissance models and designed in the Mediterranean Revival architecture style, with Baroque elements.
F. Burrall Hoffman was the architect, Paul Chalfin was the design director, and Diego Suarez was the landscape architect. Miami-Dade County now owns the Vizcaya property, as the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, which is open to the public.
