Key West Architecture

Key West is a small island filled with wildly varied home designs. In my walks around town I happened to photograph an assortment which I then decided to set out here without comment as I have nothing much to say. Some I like, usually the more traditional designs, but over the years I have also developed a taste for the less obviously Key West Conch architecture. I have come to enjoy the clean spare lines of the almost art deco style like that seen in the fourth picture. The following two homes depicted are its neighbors in the Casa Marina neighborhood, and they couldn't be more different!










Ugly utilitarian hurricane fencing is almost a required accessory, unfortunately, for many of these homes.
