This year, School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) students have been integral in the renovation of the Carroll Mansion on East Lombard Street in Baltimore, Maryland. Graduate students, Jeanie Libutti (M.Arch. ’18) and Adia Key (M.Arch. ’19), were charged with redesigning the dining room with all new furniture, floor and wall treatments, and lighting fixtures. The result is a balance of contemporary and antique sensibilities, sometimes blended, sometimes juxtaposed.
In addition to the renovation work, Zakiya Toney (M.Arch. ’17) and Caroline Schroeder (BSAED ’15, M.Arch. ’17) added the finishing touches on their contribution to the Carroll Mansion’s All American House [AAH] exhibit. Work by students in Fall 2015’s LAAR 550 and ARCH 530 studios will be on display in a room conceived and installed by faculty and students in Stevenson University’s Visual Communication Design program. Zakiya and Caroline also had a chance to speak with Baltimore Sun reporter Liz Atwood about the project.
The All American House at Carroll Mansion officially opens to the public on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 1:00 PM.
