Permanent Mission of Colombia to the Organization of American States

Otto Heinl House
1905, Wood, Donn and Deming. 1609 22nd St. NW

Buff-colored bricks in place of or in conjunction with more costly limestone were used widely for row houses at the turn of the century in reaction to the deeper hues of red brick and sandstone (black when embedded with soot) employed for their Victorian counterparts. Pressed tin (and sometimes copper) entablatures and cornices often replaced those of cast iron and wood, as at the Heinl House.
