THE SUSTAINABLE HOME

WHERE | Irish Channel, New Orleans, Louisiana

WHEN | Spring 2019

 

PROJECT NARRATIVE

 

Utilizing primarily BIM software, myself and two other students were tasked to design and develop a sustainably built and operated single-family residence anywhere within the city of New Orleans. My partners and I responded by designing a home, restaurant, and mooring facilities for a family of fishermen in the Irish Bayou; an area of New Orleans that is extremely prone to flood and storm surge.

The project was inspired by the historic self-sustaining spirit of the Irish Bayou by incorporating both living and working under the same roof. Below the 3-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom home lies a dock to moor fishing boats as well the “Crustacean Station” - an open-air restaurant meant to serve locally sourced seafood caught in the family’s backyard.
