Penza Bailey Architects designed this extensive remake of a two-story penthouse in an iconic Beaux Arts condominium in Baltimore for clients we have been working with for over 3 decades. The project was highly complex as it not only involved complete demolition of the interior spaces, but also included the installation of a new private elevator linking the two levels, and demolition and new construction on the exterior of the building. A two-story addition with the creation of four private terraces was designed to contrast the existing symmetrical brick building, and the design takes full advantage of views of downtown Baltimore from grand living spaces.
PBA worked closely with the condominium management, contractors and sub-contractors due to the highly technical and complex requirements of adding onto the 12th and 13th stories of an existing building and integrating new systems and an elevator into the existing building fabric.
