9-13 Hill Street


9-13 Hill Street


"9-13 Hill Street is an eight story, five bay, rectangular plan, commercial building faced in glazed terra cotta. The first two stories are completely ornamented with elaborate foliate relief terra cotta ornamentation, interrupted only by windows and doors. The horizontal spandrels between window pairs mark the floor levels, and are also ornamented with stylized, organic relief work. Above the second floor, fluted vertical piers extend into strongly projecting roofline chevrons, which are repeated above the window bays, forming a saw-tooth roofline cornice. This c. 1929 building is an excellent example of the Art Deco stylistic influence with flat-pattern ornamental details, constructed during a period of great interest in the use of architectural terra cotta. It is similar in stylistic influence and in the use of building materials to the adjacent building at 15-21 Hill Street "
