This 5,000 sf home was designed with the Arlington, MA neighborhood context in mind. It has a clean contemporary feel with traditional materials and roof lines, keeping a 1 1/2 story low profile feel facing the street. The south side of the house, facing the future pool area, is designed with a larger scale, more modern expression, appropriate to the scale of the land as it drops down the hill and opens up. Kraus Associates also provided construction management for this project. Construction cost, including sitework, was around $920,000 in 2013. Architectural fees, including engineering were around $34,000.
