Three Hord Coplan Macht Projects Honored for Excellence in Landscape Architecture
The firm was awarded two Merit awards and one Presidential award, the organization’s highest honor, by the Maryland Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
Hord Coplan Macht is pleased to announce today that it received three awards from the Maryland Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects. Presented at the organization’s annual gala, the awards program recognizes projects that demonstrate a superior quality of design and execution.
Earning the Presidential award, the organization’s highest honor, was Fenwick Station, a multifamily residential project in downtown Silver Spring, MD. Hord Coplan Macht created a plaza, courtyard and streetscape that were inspired by the site’s historic connections with the railroad and utilized a trellis to define its edge.
McHenry Row II in Baltimore’s Locust Point neighborhood is an adaptive reuse project which transformed an early 20th century manufacturing plant into a 21st century office complex. The landscape architecture is contemporary with a feel of industrial grit and was called “very strong and successful” by the awards jury who granted it a merit award.
Also earning a merit award was East Norbeck Local Park in Norbeck, MD. This 25-acre park incudes play and recreational facilities for a variety of ages and activities, and also features a park pavilion and exercise trails that encourage interaction with people and nature.
