You notice the difference the minute you turn off Fort Hunt Road. The houses are modest, nestled into the landscape and they are not in orderly rows lined up with the street. Grass exists only in patches. Garage doors are hard to find. There are no six-panel front doors or shutters on the windows. And the windows – they’re huge! What is this place? It’s Hollin Hills, a neighborhood of modernist houses designed by architect Charles Goodman for developer Robert Davenport and constructed between 1949 and 1971.
On October 10, join Docomomo US/DC's Virtual Tour Day of Hollin Hills, featuring an introduction to the neighborhood, video tours of the ALCOA "Care-Free" Home—one of only twenty-four built nationwide and currently undergoing renovations—and a two-story atrium house constructed of prefabricated panels, plus a brief presentation by John Burns, FAIA, on Goodman’s other work in the Washington area.
