Park Heights: Storefront Improvement

I am proud to have partnered with Neighborhood Design Center to improve the storefront design for RRR Alterations in the Park Heights neighborhood— I worked with Mr. Billy, the long-time owner of RRR Alterations, to develop a concept that spoke to his business of over 40 years, the alteration of men and women’s clothing. Because Mr. Billy did not want an open storefront, we came up with an idea to use fiber cement panels to cover the existing facade in a way that might suggest patterns found in the fabrics he works with.

This community renovation endeavor was a state funded program where businesses applied for grants to receive free architectural design services, and city residents were hired and trained to do the renovations. Great precedent in Baltimore City to curb crime in blighted neighborhoods— I can’t wait to post the photos once the project is complete!
