Maryland House established an architectural identity that is rooted in the robust brick architecture of Baltimore and the wonderful formal gardens, which almost always surround this architecture. The building is placed within the preexisting oval site to preserve the mature and large trees that exist on the site. Generous pedestrian spines extend out from the building into the surrounding parking lots, accommodating the large crowds that come to the plaza and directing them safely to the building entrances. Upon arrival, visitors will be greeted by the familiar house-like gable forms, which invite them into an open and predominantly day-lit space.

The Mid-Atlantic state’s architectural chapter doled out 22 awards to professional firms, including Ayers Saint Gross’ Travel Plazas and University of Delaware ISE Lab projects.
