The John Rolfe Apartments are a rare and early example of International Style residential architecture in Richmond and the surrounding region. Designed and built in 1940, the apartments are the most sophisticated of George Edward Hoppe Jr.’s buildings and best illustrate his interpretation of the International Style of architecture as practiced in Europe during the 1920s and 1930s.
