Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Year Built: 1986
This project was constructed on a large, corner building lot fronting New River in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The clients requested an architectural design to reside in and among a tropical garden theme. The clients wanted to incorporate a variety of building materials to create the look and feel of “Old Florida” couple with a nautical theme, such as incorporating coral stone, mahogany, Spanish tile roof, travertine marble, white stucco walls, old brick, wood jalousies and including the clients’ prized collection of stained glass.
The architectural design was a walled, mini-estate combining traditional shapes and geometric forms, such as sloping tile roof lines, mahogany ceilings, white stucco forms, and planes which articulate the interior and extend to the interior by utilizing varying height ceiling planes.
The Krupnick’s artistic and sophisticated tastes were expressed by achieving their desired private and lovely residential home environment.
