King Farm

Rockville, MD
Torti Gallas developed a set of design principles drawn from traditional communities that harken back to some of the great neighborhoods in the United States.

As the Town Planner for The King Farm, Torti Gallas and Partners provided the design leadership to create this vital, mixed-use community utilizing the principles of Traditional Neighborhood Design. In the design of King Farm, Torti Gallas developed a set of design principles drawn from traditional communities that harken back to some of the great neighborhoods in the United States. These principles encourage and embrace animated street activity, multiple forms of transportation (pedestrian, bicycles, automobiles, buses, light rail), reduced dependency on the automobile, coherent streetscapes, emphasis on quality open spaces, and the harmonious relationship of landscape, architecture and open space.

Torti Gallas was also the architect for several residential neighborhoods within this planned community.
