The Krukiel House is located just west of downtown Dallas across the Santiago Calatrava Bridge in the gated community of Kessler Woods. The house was designed and developed by Mark Krukiel to be utilized as his personal residence. The three-story 3,200 square foot dwelling contains three bedroom suites, two living areas, two stairways and a full commercial grade elevator. The house is situated on a dramatically sloping site adjacent to an active running stream and numerous mature red oak trees. Despite the site constraints the residence is fully accessible to those persons with disabilities.
The fenestration has been carefully orchestrated to take advantage of site views (including a stunning view to downtown Dallas from the upper level) while simultaneously maintaining absolute privacy. The exterior materials are brick, porcelain panels, clear and colored insulated glass, raw concrete and painted steel.
Kessler Woods is a gated residential development of single family homes offering highly sophisticated architectural design. The 30 homes are nestled on a hill at the edge of one of the oldest and most desirable neighborhoods in the city -- Kessler Park. The development is adjacent to the completely redesigned Stevens Park Golf Course. All of the homes in Kessler Woods have been designed by prominent architects and must pass strict architectural guidelines. In addition to being on the Kessler Woods Board of Directors, Mark Krukiel is also a member of the Kessler Woods Architecture Review Committee.
