Services Provided                   
The students provided design and construction services for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, single family residence. The 1370 s.f. home can be built with slight variations which produce a duplex scheme; accommodating multigenerational living, two family living, or a mixed use scenario in which part of the house can be used as an office or small commercial space. The design successfully deals with issues of programmatic adaptability, newly required elevation from ground in response to the flood, and maintaining the relationship of the dwelling to the typical public activities of New Orleans neighborhoods.
