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.
