Judging Buildings – 21st and Hillyer Pl, NW

This building near the Phillips Collection on Hillyer Pl, NW is beautiful. I’m always fascinated by the top level:

  • Looks a little like a brick manufacturer built it to showcase the various colors of brick he made.
    I like the entry canopy and door.

  • Great one, PoPs! Designed by Hornblower & Marshall in 1897. I cannot think of another building in Washington that uses four different shades of brick like this. This apparently used to have shutters. Without them we can better appreciate the simple beauty of this building and the strength of its design.
