First Street Residence

This double shotgun camelback in the Irish Channel neighborhood of New Orleans was restored and renovated to suit the new owners. Through their non-profit work, the owners were both committed to making New Orleans a better place to live, work and play. They wanted a historic home with architectural detail, but didn’t mind rolling up their sleeves on a fixer. With a limited budget, we re-configured the floor plan to create a spacious 3br/2ba unit on the owner’s side, plus a 3-bedroom apartment on the other side to generate income. We kept many of the original “Uptown” features, such as all of the old windows, brackets, and molding, a pair of huge pocket doors, wood floors, and brick fireplaces. The end result is a unique blend of historic charm and contemporary simplicity.
