KRDB homes don’t evoke the kind of millennial frisson they used to, back when they were one of the first local group of architects to be designing and building open, light contemporaries, usually some variation of stacked boxes and sporting a combination of “honest” materials including stucco, concrete, wood, and/or metal (especially Cor-ten).
Still, they continue to do it better than most—not to mention that they’ve built tons of smart, sustainable, affordable residences, as well as lovely, small-scale commercial spaces, in the city.
This Swede Hill home, built in 2016, is no exception to the excellence that distinguishes the company’s builds from the cheaper, mass-produced variety of home that inevitably follows groundbreaking shifts in design. The two-story home has an open floor plan and large windows facing a small patio and the street; fortunately for occupants, it’s on street that dead-ends into a headstone-maker for the historic Oakwood Cemetery across the street, so its proximity seems to be a bonus rather than a problem.
The 2,292-square-foot home has custom shelves and cabinetry throughout.
Floors are concrete and hard tile, and the home also features high ceilings, recessed lighting, and pocket doors.
The two story home has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
The master bedroom has a double vanity, a full bathtub, and a walk-in shower in the bathroom, as well as a walk-in closet.
The home has drought-tolerant landscaping and a one-car carport.
