McCormick World Headquarters

Baltimore County, Maryland

The adaptive reuse of an existing office building and 5.25 acre site will serve as the new world headquarters for McCormick and will consolidate staff and executives from multiple sites in the Baltimore region. Located in Hunt Valley, MD, the site will: reconfigure the vehicular and pedestrian circulation routes; remove significant impervious material; reestablish the landscape through an enhanced woodland edge and meadow planting that will be the foreground for a signature headquarters building.

Hardscape improvements include: simplified pedestrian walkways through the parking fields; a main arrival drop off plaza flanked by two new building additions; and an exterior eating terrace will be enclosed and include outdoor grilling and seating arrangements for flexibility of the staff meeting and socializing opportunities. Lastly, two exterior garden spaces and a perimeter walkway/exercise loop will provide staff opportunities to utilize and experience the exterior of space through sensory inspired plant materials.
