Additional Background

Krisana Park and its nearby sister neighborhood Lynwood together contain 299 beatuiful examples of mid-century modern houses built during 1956-57. Wheras Krisana Park offered only one floorplan with multiple exterior designs, modifying roof-lines, windows, siding, and masonry to create different looks, Lynwood was offered with six different floorplans and two exteriors each. The design options included a tri-level and A-frame model in addition to updated versions of the “3-D Contemporary” model that made Krisana Park so popular.

Often referred to as “Like-lers,” due to their similarity to the homes that the architecture firm Jones & Emmons designed for California’s Joseph Eichler, these homes were designed by Denver architect Frenchie Gratts of the firm Gratts & Warner.
