While there are mid-century modern design houses sprinkled around Denver, and even small enclaves of Modernism, Arapahoe Acres is an entire subdivision of mid-century design. One element important to Arapahoe Acres is the Usonian Style, once favored by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright’s Usonian style was developed during the Depression. In practical terms it meant houses without basements, attics, or ornamentation—a simpler version of his Prairie style. There is also an emphasis on natural materials such as stone and wood and an earthtone palette. Arapahoe Acres was the vision of developer and builder Edward Hawkins, who began the project on the edge of the suburb of Englewood in 1949. Hawkins hired architect Eugene Sternberg, who taught architecture and planning at the University of Denver and had an interest in stylish affordable housing. In eight years Arapahoe Acres was dreamed, built, and embraced by people who also had an appreciation for the simple designs that featured private exteriors and open, flowing interior floor plans, all for an affordable price. This tour takes you through the inner winding streets of this unique subdivision.
