Originally built in 1914 for Eastwick Motors, Baltimore’s first Ford dealership, the Motor House at 120 West North Avenue was transformed into a 25,000 sf arts hub that showcases Baltimore’s vibrant and diverse urban arts scene; provides quality facilities for artists, performers, curators, and nonprofit arts organizations; and attracts audiences and art patrons from across the city and around the region.

Southway was selected early in the pre-construction phase to work with the owner and design team. The first floor is the principal public venue, with a cafe, a black-box performance space, and a public gallery area in the main entrance. The second floor has been redeveloped as artist studios, and the third floor is home to office and collaborative space for arts-related non-profit organizations.
