Anthem House

Anthem House is a 292-unit mixed-use project located on a prominent site facing the Baltimore Harbor in Locust Point-Ft Mc Henry Neighborhood. The building massing displays a z-shape plan maximizing the unit vistas and creating two distinct courtyards facing the city and the harbor. Base middle and top articulate the massing, while two urban setbacks, corner and entrance court, engage with the streetscape. The two main building highlights, a 3,500 square foot sky lounge and a residential tower entry, work as main urban markers facing the neighborhood and the harbor. The metal tile steel/zinc alloy utilized in the building’s façade reflect the light and activate the urban skyline.
