Design Considerations


A Series of Individual Pavillions,
“the rambling house gleams like an Acadian village at dusk.”
(from Southern Living Article) 

Modified Acadian Style, an Exquisite Blending
of New and Old,  of Contemporary and Traditional

Built in the Traditional Louisiana Acadian Style with the Foundation Well Above
Ground, with the Roof and Dormers Steeply Sloped to Quickly Shed Water 

Wide Overhangs and Generous Porches Protect the House.  The Overhangs Cool the Air Around the House to Form an Insulating Barrier from the Hot Louisiana Sun

The Home is Bathed with Natural Light from an Abundance of Windows and Doors
Carefully Designed into the Dynamic Open Floor Plan 

The Home Promotes a Feeling of Openness While Providing a Feeling of Privacy 

Perimeter Lighting Accents Most of the Downstairs Area,
which Can be Used to Create a Dramatic Effect from the Outside at Night 

Formal Entertaining and Casual Living 

The Classical Freestanding Architectural Adicula
is the Central Organizing Element for the Open Floor Plan

Cypress Wood Exterior, Mahogany Latticework, Brick Floors on Porches,
All Designed for Durability 

Courtyards on the Sides and Rear of House Provide Areas
for Gardening and Relaxing 

New Orleans Style French Doors with Tall Shutters Surround the Front Porch
