Hollin Hills Ticket Givewaway Winner

Barrel-roof Goodman townhomes in River Park.

Christopher in Charles Goodman’s River Park is the winner of the pair of free tickets to this year’s Hollin Hills Home and Garden Tour being held May 1. Here is his submission:

“My favorite mid-century building?  My Charles Goodman River Park barrel-roof townhouse.  Our little glass home in Southwest DC is small, but makes the most of every square inch.  Now that folks seem to realize that bigger may not be better, its compact design now seems decades ahead of the curve.  The open floor plan means I can watch my kid in the living room while cooking; its glass walls bring in sunlight all day.  Maybe construction with aluminum didn’t take off, but the optimism of its architecture makes me happy every morning I wake up there.”

Look forward to seeing everyone who is going to the tour. If you can’t make it, follow the highlights I’ll be posting on Twitter.
