Exhilarating Bonnie Brae Neighborhood

1930s Art Moderne in Denver

The wonderful Bonnie Brae neighborhood offers us a few rare glimpses of the 1930s Art Moderne architectural style. Homes built in this style used classical elements in a streamlined manner and gloried in curved corners, bands and panels of glass blocks, and horizontal bands of highly polished materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, opaque color glass, and glazed terra cotta. The International style of modern architecture can also be found in this neighborhood, with its asymmetrical composition, smooth continuous wall surfaces, and avoidance of applied decoration.

A Departure from the City Norm

Bonnie Brae a big part of Denver's HistoryWinding Streets, wonderfully mature trees and great neighbors make this a wonder place to live. Originally developed by George W. Olinger in the 1920s, the plan was to deviate from grid system and create an environment that followed the natural contour of the landscape. To demonstrate the pride of the area Olinger erected stone pillars on Tennessee and Kentucky streets which remain today.

Bonnie Brae is a highly desirable neighborhoods, thanks to its proximity to Washington Park and Cherry Creek, as well as its own small district of quaint shops, ice cream parlors and restaurants.
