April tours and lectures spotlight Hollin Hills in Alexandria

Cachet: Mid-Century Modern Enclave MARCH/APRIL 2012

Hollin Hills, a residential neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia, has received national attention for its Mid-Century Modern architecture. This spring, design buffs will be able to learn more about the enclave and visit many of its homes in person. 

The Hollin Hills House & Garden Tour will take place from noon to 6 pm on April 28. It will showcase stunning examples of Mid-Century Modern architecture, furnishings and landscapes in a park-like setting. Designed by award-winning architect Charles Goodman between 1946 and 1961, Hollin Hills’ 500-plus homes are noted for their sleek lines, large expanses of glass and natural surroundings. Approximately 12 homes will open their doors to visitors for self-guided tours.

To coincide with the event, the Interior Design department of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and Corcoran College of Art + Design will host a program on April 27 entitled “A Community of Vision: Hollin Hills, Modern Then and Now.” In addition, an informal lecture will be held prior to the tour, at 11 am at Hollin Meadows Elementary School in Alexandria.
