This 3000 square foot, L-shaped, two-story home replaces the Owner’s original house on this site, which was destroyed in the flooding that followed Hurricane Katrina. Its interior living spaces are designed to focus on a new pool and patio and to frame views of a mature live oak on the site.
Replacing a severely deteriorated corner commercial structure, this New Orleans home was designed to respect the architectural character of its 7th Ward neighborhood. The 2200 SF one story structure provides the musician homeowner with a rehearsal space and a small apartment to generate rental income.
Another new home completed on Bayou St. John! 1200 SF of elevated living area with bayou views is accessed from ground level parking by means of an exterior entrance stair, sheltered within a side porch. With massing and details rooted in Mid City vernacular, the house complements its neighbor with its exterior spaces and brick piers.
