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.

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.

Lower Garden District Single Family Side Gallery Shotgun Historic Renovation

This project is a custom renovation of a single family home that qualified for $112,500 of tax credits. This Side Gallery Shotgun Single Family Residence is recognized nationally and locally as a contributing element to the historic Lower Garden District Neighborhood. The building sits on a lot that was part of the Saulet plantation before the subdivision in the 1800's, across the street from the site of the old Saulet home which was demolished in 1959. This building was in complete disrepair and was actually in structural failure at the rear of the building. To address this we designed a small custom addition that removed a shed roof that was in failure and replaced it with a kitchen extension, laundry room, and modification of the downstairs bathroom. The building was completely modernized and care was taken to preserve all the historic elements that were salvageable. The portion of the building that showcases the renovation, features a a double side gallery that overlooks the drive. The entrance opens up to a large dining area which looks into the kitchen that was part of of the custom addition. The landscaped yard features historic slate found on site during construction. This is a two bedroom, three bathroom house, with a spacious master bedroom and dedicated master bath on the second floor. All millwork and casework, including the doors and floors were milled in New Orleans. The master suite features a private balcony, walk-in closet, en suite bathroom and large shower. Gated off street parking is provided for two cars. The finishes and fixtures throughout the house were handpicked with a close attention to detail.

Marigny Shotgun Camelback Historic Renovation and Addition

This single shotgun was in complete structural failure when we first visited the site and there was a notice pasted on the front of the building that it had been condemned. The building was originally a single five room shotgun with a sidehall along the back two rooms and a storage shed addition at the back and sidehall porch. We camelbacked the building creating a large master suite on the ground floor that enjoys a rear balcony and the sidehall balcony. This room has multiple french doors that open onto this wonderful hidden sanctuary at the rear of the building. The camelback allowed for two additional bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor. The rear bedroom has access to a gallery porch at the rear of the building and covers the original sidehall gallery. The original casings and doors were preserved as much as possible and the erroneously added front brick facade was removed to reveal a beautiful house that has three sisters along the block. While this project was originally done as a single family residence, the owner has since employed Adamick Architecture to add a sprinkler and alarm system to the building so that it can be used as a bed and breakfast.
