The newly refreshed Lido Dorset on Lido Beach is having a mod-ish moment. The vacation rental property features breeze block, a popular component of architecture in the 1950s and ’60s. The Dorset is a fine example of how breeze block, which is enjoying a resurgence with the midcentury modern explosion, adds a beachy vacation feel and also functions as a sunscreen for surrounding walkways.
