Maurice Fatio was a prominent society architect whose many elegant buildings remain as much-admired Florida icons. Born and trained in Switzerland, Fatio (1897-1943) came to the United States to study American building and design methods in the early 1920s, and never left. Shortly after opening his practice in New York City, he was called to Palm Beach to design Mediterranean-style castles, British Colonial mansions, and modernist villas on spectacular sites with water views as far as the eye could see. In 1929, he married Eleanor Chase, a prominent Palm Beach society girl and novelist, in New York City.

Fatio’s houses were so well known during his lifetime that composer-lyricist Cole Porter was inspired to write brightly in the late 1930s: “I want to live on Maurice Fatio’s patio… .”  Fatio had two children with Eleanor, Alexandra and Peter. Maurice Fatio died young in his forties of cancer.His wife, Eleanor (1901–1944), died the next year.

Fatio built over 200 houses in Florida.
