Kent Manor Inn 1000px

MRA provided site programming and landscape architectural services for expansion of outdoor wedding and recreation amenities at the historic inn with access and views to the Chesapeake Bay. Creating outdoor rooms, directing views, setting arrival sequences, efficient circulation, and maintaining the historic character of the inn were paramount in the site programming exercises. MRA worked with the staff at Kent Manor Inn to develop a wedding venue that included siting an outdoor ceremony space, a reception tent with outdoor patio and landscaping, parking, drop off, and pedestrian circulation and seating areas. In addition, recommendations were made for renovation of existing farm buildings into a bridal cottage, maintenance / storage buildings, and offices, and renovation of an existing silo as a place making element.
