This classical design of the portico has, since its introduction to the Western architecture, remained a status symbol for American and English houses today and indicates the success and importance of the residents of a house. In addition to the typical portico, Palladio is also credited for popularizing the monumental two-tiered portico: porticoes with two levels or floors of columns. Another significant element of Palladian villas is the loggia, which is an open gallery or arcade with a roof that stretches along the front or sides of a building.
