The All American House is staged in an iconic Historic House Property, re-imagined by teams of select student designers enrolled in four top regional colleges and universities. Students participated in a juried design competition that was part of a two semester long course of academic study. Carroll Mansion was selected from a pool of applicants nationwide to serve as the host site in 2016.
The All American House is a signature project of MADE: In America and features the products of award winning U.S. manufacturers and craft-makers. The project seeks to establish a new look of American design within the framework of our nation’s most important historic houses: a project that will generate renewed interest in American products and re-ignite interest in historic house properties.
Participating students began the creation of the All American House by immersing themselves in the history of the site and the architectural precedents that influenced its design and decoration. The project provides them a unique opportunity to learn the complexity of the design process and profession firsthand and in a challenging environment. Their work is the first stage in the process to reinvent the site and set it on a path of transformation, both physically and operationally.
Schools participating in the All American House Student Design Competition are Morgan State University, The George Washington University/Corcoran College of Art + Design, the Community College of Baltimore County, Stevenson University, and Johns Hopkins University.
Featured companies in the All American House are Avrett, Beachley Furniture, Century Furniture, Donghia, Hickory Chair, Keith Fritz, Langhorne Carpets, Mc-Lain Weisand, Emmanuel Nicolaides, Niermann Weeks, Premiere Prints, C.W.
Robertson, Salvations, and Vicco Von Voss.
