Named for The Star-Spangled Banner, which was penned at Fort McHenry just steps from the 3D copper-folded plane elements that highlight the building’s entrance, Anthem House—like its namesake—boldly declares Baltimore a city of resilience and pride. Standing nine stories tall and positioned toward the water, Anthem House mirrors the deep roots of the surrounding neighborhood, while serving as a new gateway to the waterfront and neighborhoods of South Baltimore.

Its sleek exterior and modern lobby are adorned with eye-catching murals of hometown legends, painted by Maryland artist Jeff Huntington, and energetic designs from Washington, D.C.-based graffiti muralist MasPaz. The ground floor is activated with 20,000 sf of unique retail, including a boutique fitness studio, a hip spot for jazz music and Korean cuisine, and a coffee-to-cocktails cafe.

The open spaces that flow from the lobby, through the library and into the gathering space invite residents, guests, and patrons to interact with design elements that feel warmly inviting; part nod to the area’s architectural heritage, part reflection of the sophisticated authenticity found in chic boutique hotels.

From the Judges
The interiors—especially the graphics and textures—are great and unexpected. It’s a complete community, and consistently designed.
