Highfield House is a high-rise condominium in the Tuscany-Canterbury neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It was designed by Mies van der Rohe and completed in 1964. It was the second of two buildings designed by Mies in Baltimore. One Charles Center was the first.
Highfield House was featured in The Baltimore Modernism Project held at the D Center Baltimore in October 2012. The Baltimore Modernism Project included renderings from the archives of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, alongside a rendering and drawings on loan from the Highfield House Board, and contemporary photography by Jeremy Kargon. In October 2014, Highfield House celebrated its 50th anniversary by revealing a new plaque noting its addition to the National Register of Historic Places.

The windows are made of dark gray tinted glass. Below each window is a brick panel. The use of brick decoration can also be seen in his buildings at IIT.
