NEW PROJECT: MILLER'S COURT - AN URBAN OASIS OFFICE SPACE

A few weeks ago I began working on an exciting new design project at Miller's Court in Baltimore. Built at the turn of the 20th century (late 1800s), Miller's Court served as the headquarters of H.F. Miller and Sons, a tin box manufacturing company.   Miller’s Court now houses both urban loft style apartments and smart office space for educational nonprofit organizations, like my new clients .



The building is great example of late-19th century industrial architecture in Baltimore. Miller’s Court is located near Johns Hopkins University and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.


"Much of the buildings original architectural elements remains, including massive wooden trusses, brick pilasters, and the original cupola."


The property sat vacant for nearly 20 years before receiving its massive renovation but now is the perfect creative combination historic meets modern elegance.


The opportunity to work in a space that is over 100 year old is a dream project for a designer and history-lover like myself.  I really admire and am impressed with the level of effort and creativity architects and engineers have put into breathing new life into this historic space. 


 Here are some amazing before and after photos of the restorative work that was done at Miller's Court.

I'm excited to help to make a mark on a piece of Baltimore's history and  can't wait to show you my plans for helping my clients personalize their new office space at Miller's Court!
