Annapolis Landing Marina

Located on Back Creek in the heart of Marina Row, Annapolis Landing Marina is a full service marine facility which needed new offices and bathing facilities for transient slip users. This central two-story building places the administrative offices on the second floor, with wrap-around windows to give a better overview when running the boatyard, and creates a higher profile to draw the attention of new visitors arriving by boat. The building is a tall pavilion form, with great visibility, similar to traditional lighthouses. The bathing and laundry facilities are located on the first floor and accessed through a central outdoor hallway, giving visitors added protection from the elements. Since the property is completely shoreline, careful placement of the structure on the site and selective native plantings helped to contain the minimal amount possible for storm water run-off.
