Some of you may know that the beautiful Gardens of Guilford apartments were previously named The Garden Apartments. However, did you know that initially these apartments were conceived as The Campagnia apartments? The Campagnia apartments were designed to compliment neighboring Italian Renaissance-style buildings, The Tuscany (1918) and The Lombardy (1915), also designed by Architect Clyde N. Friz (1867-1942). Note here an early rendition of The Campagnia apartments as they appeared in The Architectural Record of 1922 (vol. 1). While the name did not remain, many features indeed did.
Can you spot the changes between architect’s early renderings and the completed Gardens of Guilford apartments standing today?
