Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore

We set out to tell the story of EAGB, and their brand, by understanding the complex history of Baltimore with an eye to its future. The property selected for their new office space is a lofty two-story volume with exposed concrete columns and an exposed steel mezzanine. Frugality was one of our design values: to use materials sparingly, in the right places to directly support their function — not express materials unnecessarily or gratuitously. Connecting the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore to their new space, while referencing the distinct and varied history of Baltimore’s economic past, was an exercise in restraint.
