An exciting new project in the small mid-town Baltimore neighborhood of Remington, Remington Row is a mixed use community that will uniquely blend 104 apartments, retail and office space, and a community health center.
Floura Teeter’s work at Remington Row included design of the streetscape and second level amenity courtyard which features an outdoor kitchen, lounge space, trellis, and small lawn. Each area presents opportunities for residents to relax and socialize while providing a landscape buffer from adjacent office functions. The design celebrates the distinctive identity of the neighborhood while providing opportunities for the community to come together, both spontaneously and for programmed events.
The streetscape provides seating areas that link to each other and to the wider community. Networks of community open space are visible from the public streets; vegetation was selected to maintain sightlines and to enhance walkability. The streetscape planting palette includes low-maintenance native or adaptive planting and street trees create subtle buffers. Seating is provided by a series of custom gabion benches, constructed of stone which suggests the mining history of Remington.
Artwork that reflects the neighborhood character is integrated through a series of “community carpets” designed and installed by local residents.
Remington Row was honored by ULI Baltimore District with a 2016 WaveMaker Award.
