Embassy of Republic of Austria (William A. Hill Company)

-A A +A
William A. Hill Company
1928, George N. Ray. 2343 Massachusetts Ave. NW

The architectural energy of this compact, beautifully proportioned three-bay Neo-Renaissance house is focused on three second-floor French windows. Here an unusual combination of arched openings crowned by flat lintels is nicely resolved by the keystones that physically connect them and the console brackets that visually frame them.
