Baltimore House Project
Beech has long been thought of as the most versatile of hardwoods
available on the world market. Opened in October 2005, home owners,
designers, and architects were afforded a first hand look at
just how versatile European Beech can be in American homes.
and designed by David M. Lowe Inc. and produced in partnership
with Harbourtown Redevelopment Inc. for a group of European Beech
producers, the Baltimore House Project was the first of it's
kind to showcase and promote European Beech to local interests.
Situated in the center of the Federal Hill South Historic District
of Baltimore, Maryland, the project is designed around a traditional
Row House dating back to the early 1900’s. By completely
renovating the interior of the house; cabinetry, flooring, stairs,
and rails, in European Beech, the Project's goal is to show the
U.S. Market why European Beech is the “Wood for all Reasons”.
further promote the quality that Europe is renowned for, all
of the kitchen cabinets were custom designed and hand built in
Germany by craftsmen and shipped to the U.S. for installation.
With a final price tag of over $550,000, the project is designed
to promote and educate U.S. designers, architects and specifiers
on the beauty and value of European Beech and show the U.S. consumer
that there is an alternative to Red Oak and other North American
Baltimore House, located at 1430 Covington Street, is located
in the Federal Hill South Historic District, an area that was
settled by a largely German population in the 1830’s.
