The Umbrella House is about to get its umbrella back.

Vincent and Julie Ciulla, owners of the 1953 house in Lido Shores, have announced that they are breaking ground on a project that will restore the “umbrella” to the Paul Rudolph-designed house.

Rudolph built the house on speculation to attract attention to the Lido Shores development of Phil Hiss. It did just that, largely because of the superstructure that shaded both the house and the pool deck. Housing and architecture magazines ran articles on the house, and it remains one of Rudolph’s best-known works of the Sarasota school of architecture.
