This large pool house was designed to give the clients the feeling of being on vacation without ever leaving the backyard. Working in collaboration with the builder and homeowner, a location was identified in the existing beautifully landscaped gardens.
Placing a detached, six-car garage in a densely populated, historic neighborhood in Baltimore City is a feat of creative thinking. To keep the structure to an appropriate scale for the site (and within the city’s 20-foot height restriction), the design breaks the needs of such a large garage into small pieces. The steep pitch of the roof and the materials complement those of the home, a beautiful stucco, stone and slate design by renowned architects Edwin Palmer and William Lamdin.
