A new district is arising in the neighborhood bounded by Corrine, Winter Park Road, and General Rees. Dubbed the East End District, the area is housing more and more artists, writers, thinkers, and doers of the twenty-first century. The housing stock, built in the mid-1940s through the early 1960s, reflects the early postwar free thinking that is now coming back to live in this affordable neighborhood.
In the spirit of this era, two new models are offered for empty or underutilized lots in the neighborhood: The Jack and the Al.
“because he had no place he could stay in without getting tired of it and because there was nowhere to go but everywhere, keep rolling under the stars…”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
- Front facade of the Jack
The Jack is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath residence with a writing studiio. The garage is
at the front for rapid access to the road. The free plan spaces of the house are clustered
around a courtyard, celebrating the midcentury freedom of thought and a unity of social,
family, and personal space.
“To gain your own voice, forget about having it heard.
Become a saint of your own province and your own consciousness.”
― Allen Ginsberg
The Al is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath residence with a raised private deck. The garage is in
the middle of the structure. A public area with living, dining, and kitchen sits with
a porch on the front of the street, while the bedrooms and family rooms float
over the top, opening onto an upper court.
