SA+P Faculty Win AIA Maryland Design Award

“R.House is bold, robust and delightfully combines two distinct personalities: one is urban, gritty and super graphic, and the other is urbane, upscale and somewhat genteel. This is not an easy combination and the architectural choices are thoughtful and intentional in achieving this mix. The architects identified key zones and gave each zone a significant spatial structure and design treatment so that the experience of the whole complex has just the right amount of variety. There are also very effective extensions of the building in the form of canopies, covered foyer and planters that bring interest to the sidewalk around the building and extend the life of the building out to the street.”
