This infill development of 10 new houses replaced an industrial building in the center of a historic residential neighborhood of Baltimore.
The project adheres to a strict master plan for the nieghborhood requiring two-car off-street parking for each house and community approval of the design. The street-facing facades of the houses were designed blend seamlessly with the existing 19th century neighborhood rowhouses while the rear facades were designed to incorporate as much glass as possible.
Unlike the surrounding 19th C. houses, the houses feature open, flowing plans, modern kitchens, and amenities such as heated bathroom tile floors.
Hull Street Mews addresses these specific environmental issues:
1) The project is an infill development. Infill development preserves open space and uses the existing street grid and infrastructure. Infill development limits commuting by emphasizing development near jobs, shops, schools and grocery stores.
2) The project also encourages pedestrian traffic by providing shade trees and stoops.
3) All storm water that passes through the site is processed through a subsurface sand filter before being returned to the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
