FT. LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA
The site was a large corner waterfront lot with the wider side facing New River, a broad navigable river. The other side which was more protected became the boat docks and service area.
The clients wanted, first of all, to live surrounded by a tropical garden. They had established a choice of materials which was a blend of “old Florida” with a nautical feel. . . . . . cut Coral stone, Mahogany, Spanish tile roofs, Travertine marble, white stucco walls, old brick, wood jalousies and their prized collection of stained glass.
The idea was a walled mini-estate feeling with architecture of interplay between traditional shapes and geometric forms. . . . . . between sloping tile roofs defined by mahogany ceilings and white stucco forms and planes which articulate the exterior and extend to the interior as varying height ceiling planes.
The Krupnick’s artistic and sophisticated tastes expressed by their specific theme resulted in a very private and lovely living environment.
