For the Foulger-Pratt Companies, LSG designers explored the inherent advantages of a two-building site plan at this 400-plus unit apartment community near I-270 in Montgomery County, Maryland.
The Perry’s physically separate courtyards are also separate in theme and program. One, for active uses, surrounds a 25 meter pool, while the passive courtyard offers a choice of outdoor rooms, each with its own focus such as a fireplace, fountain, deck, or pergola.
A central park between buildings serves as The Perry’s focal point and a link to the surrounding Park Potomac mixed-use community. Accommodating a 15 foot grade change, a sinuous, ADA/accessible walkway crosses and re-crosses an alternate, straight-line stepped path. These crossings and curves add drama and create sites for overlook seating areas. The design enhances all these features with drifts of shrubs and perennials.
