Blake's Blog describes the design of this new construction Craftsman style house on Vickery Boulevard, which will be featured in the 2011 Vickery Place Home Tour.
"Surviving into the 21st century, Craftsman design style appears in new and updated construction. The home at 5347 Vickery Boulevard is a modern take on the craftsman style and is termed a Contemporary Craftsman. Craftsman style, much like modern design, is all about clean simple lines. Creating a contemporary Craftsman homes is a great blend of traditional, simple styling, quality craftsmanship, the use of earth friendly materials with all of today’s conveniences skillfully integrated into period architecture. 5347 Vickery Boulevard has also introduced and incorporated traditional Japanese linear elements into its design. Craftsman style does not mean you must live with a completely Art’s & Crafts home. By blending Asian design style and pieces along with contemporary ones 5347 Vickery Boulevard has created a truly unique space with a nod to traditional Craftsman sensibility."
