Vanna Venturi Home Up for Historic Designation

New, 1 comment

The iconic postmodern home that Philly architect Robert Venturi designed and built for his mother Vanna in 1964 may soon be deemed historic. According to Plan Philly, the Philadelphia Historical Commission accepted a nomination to list the Vanna Venturi House in the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places. If all goes according to plan—and it most likely will—the 3-bed, 2-bath, 1,986-square-foot house in Chestnut Hill will be officially designated as historic at the commission's next meeting on December 11.
