"Perhaps Palm Beach's best kept secrets. Anne Fairfax and Richard Sammons are two of the most prominent architects practicing today Their firm, Fairfax & Sammons is synonymous with old world classicism and timeless architectural beauty. With offices in New York's historic Greenwich Village, on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach and Charleston, SC. Their work is a product of a collaborative environment that has consistently directed itself toward the future while being ever respectful of the past. Masters at the fine art of designing luxurious dwellings, their efforts convey an aesthetic indebted to Palladian, Tuscan, Mediterranean, Georgian, Neoclassical and British, Dutch Colonial and even East Coast Shingle styles. The results however are pure Americana. Their adaptations are visually striking. three-dimensional triumphs that are historically inspired but modern-in-spirit.The duo draws from a vast breadth of influences to incorporate their signature mix of traditional form for modern function. Implementing classic-with-a-twist architectural details, each element of their designs are perfectly appointed revealing exuberant displays of a thoughtfully preserved past."
