A private 19th-century glass house in Florence

I recently posted about the marvelous 19th-century glass house that is preserved for the public in Florence’s Giardino Orticultura. At the end of that post, I included an adorable private glass house that is a stone’s throw from the public garden.

I lust after this private glass house!

I love how the site is not square, but that did not daunt the patron or architect. They made an unorthodox shape to fit the site.

Here’s how it looks from down the street. It glows in the late afternoon sunshine of a December day in Florence.

It sits perched at the street end of what is probably a really nice palazzo, looking like a diamond sitting atop an engagement ring.

There’s no doubt about it, I’m in love!
