In 2014, ZeroFox retained Merritt to transform the 100-year-old, 6,000 SF “Pabst Castle” in South Baltimore into a 9,084 SF, modern office building with historical flairs.
In order to transform this building from a run-down, industrial facility to a modern office, the building required significant restoration and renovation including an all new foundation and roof, new stairwells and flooring as well as electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems.
As for the interior design, the owner had a vision to incorporate the beloved historic elements of the building, such as exposed brick and reclaimed lumber, while adding a modern touch. The layout of the finished building houses 2,500 SF of open office, five enclosed group breakout rooms, three private offices, a reception area with glass-framed conference rooms, a 800-SF mezzanine, a kitchen, lounge area, men’s and women’s restrooms with showers, a locker room for employees and room for storage. Additionally, part of the roof was transformed into a deck for outdoor working/social space.
With the expertise and creative collaboration efforts of all teams involved, the “Pabst Castle” was restored to its former glory, and now, ZeroFOX has a stunning home for their new headquarters with the perfect blend of historic and modern.
