The Compound Rowhouses

The Compound Rowhouses

Baltimore, Maryland

Quinn Evans is working with the City of Baltimore and arts nonprofit The Compound on a transformative artist housing project. We are combining four derelict row homes into two innovative communal residential units designed to achieve Phius certification. With a focus on energy efficiency, this standard establishes tight air-sealing, super-insulating detailing, and ultra-high efficiency mechanical systems that will bring these revitalized buildings close to net zero energy consumption.

A new air and thermal barrier wraps all exposures of the building envelope while allowing the legacy of the historic building to remain visible on the exterior and within select locations on the interior. A third floor addition provides large studio spaces that open onto roof decks topped with skylights and photovoltaic arrays.
