The Baltimore Design School has been selected to receive an Adaptive Reuse and Compatible Design award from Baltimore Heritage.

Baltimore Heritage is a nonprofit historic and architectural preservation organization. Baltimore Heritage and its volunteers have helped preserve hundreds of historic places across the city, including City Hall, the warehouses at Camden Yards, much of Baltimore’s waterfront in Fell’s Point and Federal Hill that was threatened with a highway proposal.

The award will be part of the 2014 historic preservation awards celebration in June.

Henry Adams provided the MEP engineering design to renovate the abandoned 115,000 GSF three story Crown Cork and Seal Machine Shop into a fashion, architecture, and design School. The building design features classrooms, student galleries, studios/ labs, media center, dining hall, workout room, and courtyard performance space.
