Project of the Month
Hilton Baltimore

Described as the city’s first true convention hotel, the new Hilton Baltimore makes use of HessAmerica outdoor lighting products and site amenities to create an interesting and functional site. Congregation areas between the hotel and the neighboring convention center become inviting spaces with Sidus benches interspersed among Sierra columns. The single and twin bench models are configured with compressed beech seating and double arms. Sierra illuminated columns lamped with ceramic metal halide add ambience to the space day or night utilizing warm diffused illumination.
Sidus Z double benches with compressed beech seats offer an inviting atmosphere for pedestrians. Sierra columns provide softly diffused illumination during the evening hours.
The hotel complex occupies two blocks prominently located within the cultural and commercial heart of the city and adjacent to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the Baltimore Convention Center, and the Inner Harbor. The architects sought to enhance the pedestrian experience and flow from the hotel to the neighboring venues. They successfully integrated Village catenary luminaires suspended between the hotels two buildings, allowing them to eliminate poles while providing the desired illumination levels for safe passage. These public spaces now have definition and cohesiveness that contribute to the overall sense of place.
Village catenary fixtures span Eutaw Street behind centerfield of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
