The Margaret Bennett House
Location: Baltimore, MD
Client: Women's Housing Coalition
This late 19th century home built for David Bachrach, a photographic innovator and uncle-in-law to Gertrude Stein who resided there for a summer, was rehabbed into a five unit house for mothers and children. A Registered National Historic Place; the site contains a wood frame three story building with side porch and a one and a half story masonry studio in the rear yard, originally constructed for sculptor Ephraim Keyser. The exterior restoration includes three-color slate mansard roof, replacement wood double-hung windows, fiber cement board lap siding, and restoration of the elaborate wood porch. In addition to the dwelling units, the project includes a case manager’s office, computer lab and parlor. Site development includes an entrance court, ADA compliance, and parking. The project was funded with NSP2 funds.
