    House Style Notes

Bungalow    Italian Rennaissance

Placing this under the category of Italian Rennaissance is done loosely: Hermann Krause, the architect/designer, was designing numerous homes in San Jose at the time using many variations on Italian Rennaissance style. He often incorporated large arches and this house with its "mini" portico is an example of that practice. But like its Krause-designed neighbor to the east, it lacks key components that would complete the Italian Renaissance style largely due to its truncated roof - no eaves or bracket ornamentation. The buttress wall with driveway gate was added in 2003.
