Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the most radically inventive and thoughtful architects in American history, striving for an unpretentious architecture harmonious with the natural world.

  • A Breeze Blows Through It

    By Kymberly Taylor  |  Photography by Julia Heine The home, hidden in a forest on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, has a glass façade and floating horizontal roof lines grounded by two stone columns. The structure gives the impression of gliding forward, with a design that interacts with nature’s rhythms while harnessing its energies. “If this house had a language it would be one of adaptation,” says architect Mark McInturff, FAIA. He explains that the.

    The Kagan Law Group Transforms a Corner on West Street By Robert Haywood |  Photography by Lenny Kagan   Commercial architecture plays a major role in defining the aesthetic of a city.  Such structures can be thrown together and crass, giving a city a lifeless quality. Or, well-designed and constructed, making a city appear as a place where thoughtful people live and work. BEFORE The new offices of Kagan Law Group on West Street adds.

  • The Preservation of Spa Creek: Small Changes, Large Impacts

    By Kevin Campion In the previous two publications of Annapolis Home, we established a geological and cultural baseline of history for the Chesapeake Bay. We framed an argument for the need to increase its protection and preservation. Centering this argument is a crucial fact: The Bay is uniquely fragile. Its shallow waters and the creatures living within are influenced by flows, temperatures, tides, pollution, chemical discharge, overfishing, and much more. Each of us has a.

      1. It’s a good idea to remind ourselves of how fortunate we are to have the Chesapeake Bay as the defining feature of Greater Annapolis and to have Washington, DC nearby, with all of its extraordinary art and cultural programs. One great event that takes place in D.C. over this summer is the Smithsonian Institution’s Folklife Festival. Each year the festival offers cultural heritage programs, with this year’s themes being “Circus Arts” and “On.
  • High Fashion and Kitchen Design

    A Study in Inspiration By Tom Levine   Richard Anuszkiewicz, executive director of the casework division for Alt Breeding Schwarz Architects, had a golden opportunity. American Standard, a luxury kitchen and bath products firm, offered him the rare task of designing a showcase kitchen inspired by America’s “golden era,” the period in the 1920s and 1930s when Art Deco flourished. DXV, American Standard’s luxury design division, gave Anuszkiewicz almost complete carte blanche, which is rare.

    The Co-Owners of Bridges Restaurant Update Their Interior By Carol Sorgen  |  Photography by Geoffrey Hodgdon   Paying attention to detail is the name of the game for these Stevensville homeowners who want a welcoming retreat not only for themselves but also for their grown children, grandchildren and the many friends they love to entertain throughout the year.
