This design is for a developer of new infill housing on empty lots in an inner city neighborhood that is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. The design accomplishes two main goals: one to be compatible with the existing historic architecture and two, to provide dwellings that are more affordable than a single family home. A duplex that looks like a single family home in the craftsman style was the solution. Although the compatible architecture was not required, the developer felt strongly that the new construction needed to continue the existing style of the surrounding houses and not detract from the sense of community. The exterior captures typical Craftsman revival style in open rafter tails, brackets, front porches, columns with large base elements, and detailing at attic vents.
