Jon Penndorf

Jon Penndorf has been a Capitol Hill resident since 2006 but has lived in (and close-in to) Washington DC since 1995, and wonders when he can start telling people he is “from here” instead of saying he moved here for college from New York. An architect specializing in green design, Jon works for a large architecture firm with an office in Northwest DC. Off-the-clock he enjoys spending time outside with his family, traveling, making and sampling gin and bourbon cocktails, finding new restaurants to try, and of course writing. He contributes to local and national architecture association newsletters on a regular basis in addition to writing for THIH. Jon lives with his wife, daughter, son, and cat in their SE Hill rowhouse.

Leaf Collections on the Hill

It’s finally feeling like autumn in Washington, DC.  There’s a chill in the air, the smell of Pumpkin Spice Lattes floats in the breeze, and we no longer have to pull weeds and cut grass.  As the leaves turn brilliant shades of yellow, red, and orange, they fall gently to the earth.  Brilliantly-colored leaves that […]
