In seventeenth-century Maryland, the country houses of Saint Mary’s County were either manor houses or plantation houses and were direct transplants from the English Middle Ages reflecting the late medieval manner of building. Located in Saint Mary’s County, Maryland, not far from Saint Mary’s City, the site for this project is an extremely unique and beautiful peninsula bounded by the Patuxent River to the east and Lewis Creek to the west. Thoroughly contemporary in function, the forms and details of this new house explore and express the unique vocabulary of its English roots found in the earliest medieval architecture of Maryland's first capital, Saint Mary’s City.
