A few months ago, I wrote about the invitation I created for the Baltimore Architecture Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Party on April 28th. I'd been by the venue where we are having the party, but I hadn’t been inside. One of the reasons that I love old buildings is the sheer volume of detailing that fills them. The interior of this building, One East Lexington Street, is full of a creamy marble. From the small water fountain right as you come in the door, (shame about the hideous pipe!)to the double height walls, everything’s marble.
The old safe is still in situ, and we thought it would be fun to use for the bar, but knowing our friends, there would be a massive traffic jam.Love the locks inside of it.There’s some decorative element to each part of the safe.Even though they’ve replaced the bulbs with the hideous energy efficient ones, the lights are still pretty terrific.There are some small offices that take advantage of the double height of the space, and that’s where we’re putting the DJ.
Tickets to the BAF 25th Anniversary Party are available here.
