Krisana Park Pattern Book

Date: 1/2/2019
Location: Krisana Park

Krisana Park is a unique and well-loved neighborhood. Its special mid-century character, based on the designs of California developer Joseph Eichler’s sophisticated, yet affordable and comfortable houses, is one of the many reasons it remains a popular place to live in Denver. 

One of CoPR’s recently completed projects is the Krisana Park Pattern Book. Born out of a desire among homeowners to better understand what makes their neighborhood special, the pattern book provides a history and visual description of the neighborhood so that its character can be valued and maintained. The book also discusses maintenance issues and often-desired modifications, providing advice on how to update your home while retaining original character.
