URBANbuild 07 | 1909 Toledano
URBANbuild 7 is a finely crafted home that raised the bar on expectations for all projects to follow. For this house, NHS gave the program two adjacent substandard lots, which allowed the students to pursue a different planning typology than those of many earlier URBANbuild homes. Students were not constrained by the typical narrow “shotgun” lot configuration so common to New Orleans and were able to pursue a wider, center-hall strategy. Members of this studio also expressed a particular interest in landscape strategies. As a result, the home features two porches intended to both celebrate the landscape and provide indoor/outdoor spaces that honor the city’s rich traditions of cooking, dining, and entertaining.
