The Victorian styled warehouse was built by the Crown Cork & Seal Company in 1897 to house
an industrial factory for the newly invented bottle cap.
One century later, the warehouse is nicknamed The Copycat, and is home to the creative class
of Baltimore, Maryland. The residents of today share their live and work spaces wich are built,
torn down and rebuilt to fit the needs of their creative practice.
