Metairie Single-Family Renovation

Adamick Architecture was the architect of record for the complete renovation of this 70s split-level home in Metairie, LA. An addition was established in the rear of the house, where the existing screen porch and deck were replaced with an open deck and sunroom with new roof. Walls were removed throughout the structure, allowing for a more open floorplan. The original ceiling made of Tectum, a sound-reducing acoustic tile, as well as the exposed wood beams were retained throughout the house. Notable features include updated appliances, fixtures, and finishes, recessed lighting, and updated window treatments.

Uptown Single-Family Historic Shotgun

Adamick Architecture was the architect of record for the renovation of this existing converted double. Notably refreshed features of this home include an open living space, new kitchen, new bedroom suite with full bathroom, attic access in the master closet, and new fixtures and finishes throughout the home. Pentek Homes was the contractor of record for this project.

Marigny Single-Family Renovation and Addition

Adamick Architecture was the architect of record for this breathtaking renovation of a historic home in the Marigny neighborhood. The residence was featured in the volume about Creole Faubourgs in the series “New Orleans Architecture,” because of its Moorish architectural influences. This renovation facilitates a union of the structure’s classical exterior with a contemporary floorplan and finishes. Features include custom millwork by Inhab, second floor loft with custom steel guardrails, enclosed fireplace with custom finish by Diane Killeen, exposed brick bedroom walls, custom metal stair rail, and a glass stacking sliding door in the rear that opens to a private courtyard. Inhab was the contractor of record and Adamick Architecture worked with Brooke Cranford Design to collaborate on interior selections and finishes.

Chateau Veterinary Clinic

Adamick Architecture assisted Dr. Nix and her staff at the Chateau Veterinary Hospital to renovate and expand their clinic in Kenner, Louisiana. The collaborative goal was to enhance the clinic by creating more exam and treatment space, as well as expanding to a second floor for office and administrative spaces. Other features in this redesign include storage, spaces for professional development, a large dog examination room, dog and cat kennels, a washing station for future grooming services, and a cat-only exam room that circulates pheromones to further achieve the mission of being a fear-free certified clinic. Adamick Architecture successfully navigated appeal through obtaining a parking variance with the City of Kenner and also phased the design so that the clinic could continue to operate during construction.

Fairgrounds Single-Family Residence

Adamick Architecture was the architect of record for the renovation and addition to this Arts and Crafts house in the Fairgrounds neighborhood. The addition consists of a new second floor master suite with a double gallery that provides views of the Acura Stage during Jazzfest. The historic interiors were preserved at the formal dining room, bedrooms, foyer, and bathroom while the rear of the existing structure was renovated to create an open kitchen and living area. Features include new finishes, HVAC, plumbing, and appliances. Pentek Homes was the contractor of record.

Holy Cross Single-Family Residence

Our design for this historic renovation was implemented by Lagraize Builders. This renovation includes reclaimed heart pine flooring, cypress cabinetry, and custom finishes. The living area opens up to a kitchen with a custom island, hood, and stainless-steel appliances. The master bath has a very spacious shower and a console double vanity that continues the theme of reclaimed wood. This home was recently showcased in the Parade of Homes hosted by the Homebuilder’s Association of New Orleans and featured in the New Orleans Advocate.

Holy Cross Two-Family Historic Renovation

Adamick Architecture was the architect of record and Big Easy Construction was the contractor of record for this vibrant historic renovation in the Holy Cross neighborhood. Work included the repair of exterior siding, soffit, and fascia of the two-story property. In addition to aesthetic repairs to the interior, electric, plumbing, and HVAC was upgraded. This Italianate-styled centerhall property was also approved for historic tax credits by the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation.

Uptown Double Shotgun

Adamick Architecture teamed up with interior designer Brooke Cranford to facilitate a historic renovation of this double shotgun. The camelback added on to the existing structure increased the square footage by almost one half of its existing footprint. The stained-glass windows were retained to provide a subtle pop of color to the nutty and off-white exterior. Features of this renovation include reclaimed doors, custom millwork, leaded glass, antique chandeliers, and reuse of historic fixtures. At the top of the stairwell in the newly built camelback is an open sunroom which is adjacent to the children’s bedrooms. This allows the downstairs to be dedicated to more formal living and hosting. The downstairs also includes a master suite, which expands across the center of the building. This in turn, kept the building a double, giving the owner rental income. We couldn’t have achieved this beautiful design without our client’s love of and respect of the historic architecture of New Orleans.

Bywater Bakery

This historic corner store was sitting vacant and being used for the occasional art show and for band practice. Adamick Architecture worked closely with the owners to develop a bakery and café space within the existing footprint of the building to return the building into commerce. Today you can still see local art on the wall and the occasional show while also enjoying the wonderful menu of baked goods, sandwiches and drinks. Adjacent to the café is an apartment with access to an intimate courtyard. We developed fire details to separate these two uses while maintaining many historic features including doors, windows, beadboard ceilings, and bargeboard walls. The building is under full HDLC control, so we navigated the approval process for the necessary façade changes while also ensuring that the building became ADA compliant. To better serve customers, an expansion of the kitchen was planned for and implemented just in time for Bywater Bakery’s upcoming 2nd birthday in January. If you haven’t tried one of their amazing cakes or sandwiches, we suggest that you make a visit!

Riverbend Renovation and Camelback Addition

The renovation of this single-family residence involved demolition of the rear of the building and the addition of a camelback. Walls were knocked down and windows were added to provide for a more open floorplan with natural lighting throughout the home. Upgrades included HVAC, electrical, roofing, and a privacy fence at the rear of the home. With the changes, overall square footage increased from 1307 to 2640. Notable features include a gourmet kitchen with large island and Cristalo Quartzite counters, chandeliers throughout, and hardwood flooring.

Clearview Veterinary Hospital

Adamick Architecture worked closely with Dr. Bennett of the Clearview Veterinary Hospital to design their new Metairie location. The design utilizes best practices to create two circulation routes, one for clients and a separate circulation for staff. This separate circulation will create a streamlined flow to increase productivity and help manage risk. The clinic includes four exam rooms, an x-ray suite, a surgical suite, and four treatment stations. Special spaces include a grieving room, a playroom for Dr. Bennett’s daughter, as well as large/small dog and cat boarding areas with dedicated outdoor run space. Interior finishes were selected for durability and to facilitate easy cleaning. A new parking lot ensures that clients will always have easy access to the clinic. This renovation will allow the Clearview Veterinary Hospital to operate in a modern facility that will be a wonderful place to work and a great resource for pet owners to keep their pets healthy for years to come.

Central City Single-Family Renovation

Adamick Architecture transformed this 1379 square foot single shotgun into an elegant two unit property. The front façade was completely renovated, and house gutted to convert the single family into a two bedroom in the front, and an efficiency in the rear. The existing brick columns were remodeled into wood box columns with moldings to give the porch a more simplistic look. New features include barn doors, an open floor plan, enclosed fireplace, and a bar style island in the kitchen. (Photos by IMOTO.)

Gardner Realtors Historic Renovation

Adamick Architecture was the architect of record of the breathtaking historic renovation of the original Gardner Realtors office located on Maple Street in Carrollton.  Originally, the office consisted of two historic structures that were connected with a series of 9 additions.  This created over 20 floor elevation changes throughout the building.  Adamick Architecture worked with clients to help them realize a greater vision for the space by removing these small additions and creating a comprehensive connecting building that acts as the office’s “bullpen”. Many historic features were retained and incorporated in the update of this business; including bargeboard on the walls, brick fireplaces, and beadboard ceilings. This project was approved for historic commercial tax credits, which helped to offset the costs of this grand transformation (Photos by IMOTO).

Uptown Single-Family Historic Renovation

Adamick Architecture worked alongside Pentek Homes to renovate this charming single-family residence. We measured and documented the existing conditions, then modified the floorplan to provide the maximum space for both living and entertaining guests. This 2,340 square foot home features many forms of natural light, a double parlor, authentic ceiling medallions, a spacious master bath with his and hers accommodations, new appliances, and a spacious walk-in closet for the master bedroom.

Treme Single-Family Historic Renovation

Adamick Architecture worked diligently to maintain the historical appearance of this double shotgun conversion. This previously plain property now has pops of pink and blue on the exterior façade against a base of white, giving it a playful and whimsical appeal. The original doors and windows were given a facelift and new light fixtures now grace the original brick fireplaces in two bedrooms. Interior features include multiple areas for living, dining, and entertaining, as well as a master bedroom and bath suite with a walk-in shower and clawfoot tub. Big Easy Construction was the contractor of record (Photos by SNAP Real Estate Photography).

Canal Street Historic Façade Renovation II

Adamick Architecture has assisted in the historic renovation of another historic façade on a Canal St. commercial building. The Historic District Landmarks Commission (HDLC) in New Orleans approved reconditioned brick and detail work on the third and fourth floors, new windows, and fresh stucco resurfacing on the face of this structure. We at Adamick Architecture hope to continue our support for the beautification of many more façades and commercial businesses in this area. (Photo by Scott Heath).

Bywater Three-Family Residence Renovation

This formerly blighted furniture store and apartments have been transformed into a renovated three-family residence located in the historic Bywater neighborhood. The interiors provide a contemporary feel with updated appliances, lighting and plumbing. Its original doors, mismatched windows, and arts and crafts-era layout however, was restored to maintain its traditional appearance. Historic features include the enclosed sunroom, bathroom cabinetry, the view under the stairs in one bedroom, and the small parlor door and window ledge in the downstairs space. A second story loggia in front and balcony in the rear grace its exteriors. Adamick Architecture worked closely with the Bywater Historic District Landmarks Commission to design and renovate this property, making it eligible for historic tax credits. Such historic tax credits enable the revitalization of this area as it makes transforming blighted properties such as this one affordable. (Photos by SNAP Real Estate Photography.)

Canal Street Retail Store

Adamick Architecture collaborated with the corporate design team at Athlete’s Foot to create this beautiful flagship store in the Giani building on Canal St. This high-end franchise location was completed on a highly accelerated design and construction schedule. We worked with the Historic District Landmarks Commission (HDLC) in New Orleans to approve the installation of the new storefront system within the historic Canal Street façade and collaborated with Athlete’s Foot to create a customized, New Orleans-themed store interior. Architectural features such as original cast-iron columns and exposed brick walls were preserved, new high-end finishes, custom product displays, new lighting and HVAC systems were incorporated into the stunning renovated interior (Photographs courtesy of Athlete’s Foot).

Hammond Single Family Historic Renovation

This gracious residential renovation in Hammond, Louisiana brought back this historic home to its former charm. Adamick Architecture worked with Pentek Construction to restore the main residence and add a father-in-law accessory structure to the rear yard. Noteworthy exterior improvements to home include a covered back porch, a new deck, and installing more historically appropriate columns and hand rails on the existing front porch, which faces the Hammond Historic District. The interior renovations added a spacious updated kitchen, new cabinetry, and walk-in closets, and restored such vintage architectural features as the hardwood floors and generous wood windows. The remodeled home boasts five bedrooms and four-and-half baths. In addition to coordinating approvals from the Hammond historic district landmarks commission, Adamick Architecture helped the client establish the eligibility of the property for residential historic rehabilitation tax credits, reducing the overall cost of the project.

Bayou St. John Single Family Renovation

This historic double in Bayou St. John was renovated into a single-family residence along with its neighboring sister house. Adamick Architecture reconfigured the home to preserve the historic architectural appearance of a traditional Italianate double-shotgun while reorganizing its interior for contemporary use. We connected the original four front rooms to blend formal and casual style particularly valued in New Orleans, with a formal living room, den, diving room, and kitchen. Accessed by a hallway off the front rooms, the three bedrooms include a master bedroom with a master bathroom featuring a large walk-in shower, elegant cast iron clawfoot bathtub, and double-vanity. The renovation also incorporated modern amenities such as a laundry room, central and heat, and a sophisticated new kitchen. This 1,800-square foot, three-bedroom, two-bath single-family home showcases traditional architectural features such as soaring twelve foot high ceilings, original heart pine flooring, exposed brick fireplaces with wood mantelpieces, and restored double-hung wood windows.

Bayou St. John Single Family Renovation

This historic renovation is one of four sister double shotgun houses just steps from the banks of Bayou St. John on Dumaine. The project was undertaken simultaneously with the adjacent property, which was one of the sister houses. This 2100 square foot residence was originally a double and was renovated into single family home. Once an eyesore after Hurricane Katrina, this three bedroom, three bath has been lovingly restored by Adamick Architecture. Some of the original historic features include brick fireplaces, antique heart pine flooring, 12’ high ceilings, brackets, and a clapboard façade. As you enter the house you are greeted by a large living room where the front two rooms of the shot gun were combined. As you pass through the historic sets of pocket doors you enter the dining room on one side or a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances and wet bar on the other. A center hallway leads to the bedrooms. On one side two bedrooms share a jack and jill bath and on the other there is a spacious master suite. At the end of the hall an entertainment room looks out onto the spacious backyard and deck.

St. Roch Cottage Renovation and Addition

This renovation transformed a modest L-shaped cottage into a gracious two-story single family residence located in the St. Roch area. Taking cues from historic New Orleans architecture, this 2,172 square foot home is composed of a restored shotgun style home converted into a camelback and a rebuilt two-story rear wing with double gallery. The living room occupies the front of the original house with a restored front porch and vintage door. The first floor of the rear wing includes kitchen with reclaimed wood and stone finishes, dining room, and pantry. The downstairs features a cozy guest suite with kitchenette, bedroom, full bath, and access to the lower gallery. The upstairs master bedroom suite has a master bath, walk-in closet, and private upper gallery. Two other bedrooms, a full bath, and laundry room are also located on the second floor. Historically inspired features of this home include the classic box columns of the elegant double-gallery and interior details such as accent surfaces of reclaimed wood, reused vintage windows and doors in selected locations, and traditional moldings throughout the building.

Magazine Single-Family Renovation and Addition

Adamick Architecture helped the clients renovate an existing building that had previously been subdivided into four separate apartments, and restore it to an elegant uptown single family home. This 4,050 square foot single family residence has four bedrooms and four and half baths, including a master suite and mother-in-law suite on the ground floor. Within the historic building shell, a redesigned interior layout incorporates both formal areas such as a foyer with double parlor, and a more contemporary arranged open-plan of great room, informal dining and kitchen. Balconies and porches in both the front and back allow gracious outdoor living while lending traditional style. Amenities include mud room, pantry, laundry room, and multiple walk-in closets and storage closets. With its exterior sensitively restored, this grand uptown home once again stands proudly among stately historic houses on this tree-lined uptown street.

Irish Channel Single Family Historic Renovation

This historic renovation created a spacious single-family residence out of a disused older building with 2,700 square feet over two floors. This unique home has a striking loft-like interior open living area and four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. Quality finishes such subway tile, reclaimed lumber, and traditional moldings help create an inviting atmosphere in this unique building.

Freret Street Historic Facade Restoration

Adamick Architecture assisted in the historic restoration of a commercial building on Freret Street in New Orleans. This two-story structure originally housed a Chinese laundry on the first floor and apartments on the second floor. The renovation included restoring the stucco façade, and providing drawings to white box a restaurant downstairs and an office upstairs. This building was also made accessible to persons with disabilities without disrupting the defining historic characteristics of the building. We worked with the Division of Historic Preservation to make this design adhere to the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, so the project could be eligible for tax credits. The stucco façade was resurfaced and painted. Adamick Architecture measured the entire existing building, prepared elevations that showed an appropriate restored appearance, and guided the project through review and approval by the State Fire Marshal and the city of New Orleans.

St. Claude Corridor Comedy Theater

Adamick Architecture had worked with The New Movement to find an appropriate location for their theater on St. Claude Arts Corridor. After a first location fell through, the group found a building that had almost been renovated into two apartments. However, we realized that we could use the ground floor as a theater space and the upstairs for classrooms, offices, and support spaces for the theater such as a literally green room. So we went ahead and tore up a perfectly good apartment on the ground floor to make way for the artist's new home. This space was converted into a long rectangular theater with a ADA bathrooms, merchandise stand (now a bar), and support spaces. The theater is up and running, and we are excited to announce that we just worked with the group to get them a conditional use to also sell alcohol on the premises. The back of the building is an open courtyard that has a fun existing mosaic of pastel broken tile that was kept and will now serve as the waiting area before shows.

Canal Street Historic Facade Restoration

Adamick Architecture assisted in the historic restoration of a commercial building facade on Canal Street, in order to meet the requirements of the Historic District Landmarks Commission (HDLC) in New Orleans for a Downtown District Development grant. The stucco facade surface needed to be returned to its historic appearance, including character-defining score lines that resembled stone blocks. Adamick Architecture measured the entire existing building, prepared elevations that showed an appropriate restored appearance, and guided the project through review and approval by the HDLC for construction. Subsequent to this project, the same client engaged Adamick Architecture to design a grant-funded historic restoration of the facade for another commercial building on the same block of Canal Street. This HDLC-approved facade restoration is currently under construction.
