Eugene Groves’ Holland House

DOD: Eugene Groves’ Holland House
Join us inside University Park’s landmark Holland House, designed by architect Eugene Groves in 1932. The 1667 sq. ft. home is constructed entirely of pre-cast concrete panels, a method invented and patented by Groves. His goal was to create simple, low-cost, efficient, durable and fireproof buildings. Remarkable inside and out, you’ll first notice the dome as you approach the house, and inside will be entranced by the unique craftsmanship, including the “health sleeping unit” constructed on a concrete foundation. This is the only Groves home designated as a Denver local historic landmark.
