Group DescriptionHollin Hills is a modernist community in Alexandria, Virginia founded by developer Robert Davenport and architect Charles Goodman as an antidote to the colonials, tudors and Cape Cods that had overwhelmed the region.
From the Washington Post:
Hollin Hills, which Goodman designed from 1949 to 1971 on 240 heavily wooded acres just four miles south of Old Town Alexandria, comprises more than 450 homes that are stylistically aligned with the ideas of such architects as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Rudolf Schindler and Richard Neutra, expatriated Europeans who were at the forefront of American modernism in the decades bracketing the Second World War. The homes they created -- typically low-slung affairs marked by stark lines, open plans and the liberal use of glass -- abandoned historical templates in favor of a sleek, streamlined, forward-looking architecture
