Completed in 1473, the Palazzo Auditore is notable for its rusticated stonework and Roman pilasters. Giovanni Auditore designed the palazzo himself, based on initial sketches by Leone Battista Alberti.

Once built, the palazzo became a fixture of the Santa Maria Novella district. Lorenzo de’Medici mentioned in a letter addressed to Giovanni, dated 1474, that he admired the façade’s lack of “ostentation”.
