LOEWS HOTEL in Annapolis expanded their restaurant to a new location along West Street to create a greater presence along this popular corridor. Outdoor seating areas allowed pedestrians view into the space while creating a secluded and comfortable atmosphere for restaurant patrons. Extensive plantings provide a colorful buffer between the restaurant space and the sidewalk while respecting the historical character of Annapolis. The use of Greenscreen allows a secluded buffer between the side restaurant area and an adjacent drive aisle leading to the hotel’s entrance. Services were provided as part of Sigma Engineering, Inc.
The ARC of Maryland
The ARC of MARYLAND created an extensive native and wildlife setting as part of their new headquarters in Annapolis. The designers carefully melded six different gardens rooms each with a different theme, revolving around wildlife, nature and vegetable gardens. A meandering trail provides access to all rooms, offering a perimeter trial around the site which connects to an offsite neighborhood path that allows the community to connect and participate with this space. Raised planters provided areas for residents in wheel chairs to connect to nature and plant vegetable gardens on the property. The project has won numerous awards for its creative and accessible design.
