Let the building begin...

After almost 2 years of planning and re-planning, the renovation and addition project of a 19th Century Modern Shotgun has begun. The project consists of removing a 1920s enclosed porch, renovating the kitchen, bath/laundry room, while also adding a modern den and loft.

Builder/Contractor: Decro
Architect: David Dillard, AIA
Location: Garden District, New Orleans

Why Modern?
Because the stucture that is being built should reflect the time when it was built. We have documented and photographed exisiting photographs of the house before removing the enclosed porch. Evidence of the original structure can be seen in our photo log.

Visual Contrast, Historically Accurate
One of the most appealing elements between the historic three-bay Victorian shotgun and the modern addition is the contrast that will be created. Since the original historic structure has been restored from the facade to the removed 1920s addition, the contrast in these two architecturally elements reflects the periods in when they were built. The finished project will not compete with the original late 1800s structure, and the addition will reflect the 2007 addition.

As New Orleanians, we are proud to be a part of a New, Modern New Orleans!
