Hord Coplan Macht is proud to announce that it’s Woodvalley Residence project has won an Honor Award in the 19th Annual Professional Awards Program by the American Society of Landscape Architects Maryland and Potomac Chapters. 

The Woodvalley Residence is a new residence and garden located in a 1960’s suburb of Baltimore County, MD.  Hord Coplan Macht, as landscape architect, created upper level garden spaces on the north side of the home, and, to make the best use of the sloping rear yard, the team designed a series of terraces on the south. The contemporary design language of architecture and landscape are tightly integrated through a clear minimalist approach and shared use of stone and wood materials in the interior and exterior spaces. Planting is arranged in simple, formal and informal patterns as an overlay to the structure of the site’s organization. The plant palette consists predominantly of natives and provides habitat for butterflies, birds, and pollinators.
