Restoration Gardens II
Baltimore, Maryland

Young adults facing the challenges of outgrowing foster care or homelessness find hope and a safe place to call home at Restoration Gardens II. Meeting both staff and resident’s needs, our design delivers housing and vital, on-site support spaces for counseling, education and career development, creating a positive foundation for success and preparing Baltimore’s youth for a better future. Our second facility for the program, the new building filled a need in the City’s supportive housing market and stimulated revitalization in the community. Studio apartments feature individual kitchens and bathrooms with built-in amenities, including storage and dining counters, and provide a comfortable and secure haven for residents. Mindful of budgets, the design utilized highly efficient mechanical and plumbing systems and LED fixtures to reduce operating costs.

The Solution



HANDS, Best Affordable Small Housing Project

“When Restoration Gardens 1 was opened, the positive impact it had on the community was immediately clear. All rooms available were leased within three months of its opening. Soon after, a senior center in the area was renovated, and homeownership in the vicinity increased, along with maintenance of other nearby buildings. Restoration Gardens 2 is projected to have a similar positive effect, creating jobs during its construction and lowering the rate of homelessness and crime in the area. By providing supportive housing for a population in need, both the city and the youth living there are prepared for a better future”
