DAVID DELASANTOS, PROJECT architect for the Woodmark Collection condos, didn't have to look far for design cues when his firm took on this 36-unit, high-end project. It's set in a mature residential neighborhood (University Park) near downtown Palo Alto that is filled with tip-top examples of California's Craftsman architecture. The varied rooflines, warm wood shingles, intricate wood detailing, abundant decks, and friendly porches give this modern-day project a definite Arts and Crafts flavor.
