Kings Point is a late-midcentury modern development consisting of 44 homes, building and landscape design by William Krisel. It has frequently been featured on Modernism Week home tours and in various media.

Krisel used an architectural style described as “international modern,” minimalist in concept and characterized by unadorned geometric firms, open interiors and generous expanses of glass, strong vertical and horizontal lines and simple geometric, often rectilinear forms. It makes use of architectural concrete blocks, windows, walls of glass, stucco painted white, a flat roof, no baseboards or moldings, and other elements.

Krisel refined this style with Kings Point, incorporating bold clerestory windows for light and views, extended roof eaves for shade and relief from the sun and heat, and other features.

I am very fortunate to live in Kings Point with Steve Neiffer.
