Completed while employed at Gensler, Baltimore as Lead Designer
A financial space designed in an industrial era furniture manufacturing plant located in a revitalized district of downtown Baltimore. The design was heavily informed by the original structure and materials affording a new intent to elements from the past and establishing contextual integration. This design process lent to a conscientious concealment and exposure of the original structure, elegantly filling the space with new purpose while still honoring the inherent beauty of what was. Existing materials were uniquely salvaged to give new meaning and purpose to pieces that would otherwise be treated as refuse. By salvaging these select materials, and repurposing, new elements were created enhancing the building’s original character, rather than dissolving it completely.
