James Deering built Vizcaya in 1916 in the style of Italian Renaissance and Baroque villas. He adapted it to Florida’s sub-tropical climate, and made sure to install all the modern conveniences of the early 20th century. Assisted by interior designer Paul Chalfin, architect F. Burrall Hoffman, and landscape designer Diego Suarez, he wanted the house to look as if it had been there for 400 years and furnished by succeeding generations of the same family.
