Williams st. headquarters
This three floor (including basement) rowhouse was totally gutted exposing its masonry shell. The renovation inserts contemporary space, designed to be useful both as a commercial office space or single family residence depending on the owner. Initially fit-out as the corporate headquarters for a local developer, it was envisioned flexibly for the inevitable moment when they grew out of the space: living room or workstations, master bedroom or conference room, etc. A small kitchen addition was also added to one side where a small side yard, unique to this area of Baltimore, allowed also for a secluded deck. Overall the space was left in a raw form, including exposed ductwork, and the detailing reflects this industrial character as well as the specific personality of the client.
