New Orleans, LA
The Tupelo Street project is a renovation and addition to a single-family, shotgun house in the Holy Cross neighborhood. The new kitchen and living areas were relocated towards the back half of the house to create a space that has more indoor/outdoor living connection with the large private lot. The camelback addition, reviewed by the HDLC, includes a new master suite, laundry and third bedroom with a private bathroom. The facade and other historic elements were maintained with careful consideration of the addition, in scale and use, such that the new would compliment the original structure.
