704 Marigny St.,  New Orleans, LA

Originally constructed between 1809 and 1836 as a one-story brick corner store with a two story detached kitchen, this Marigny corner building was converted to a residence in the 1880s, with a wood framed second floor and traditional iron gallery added in 1886. Multiple subsequent renovations occurred over subsequent years. Utilizing careful research and extensive documentation, an extraordinary three-year restoration commenced in 2013 to restore the simplicity of the historic interior while adding modern conveniences and technology to enhance the owners’ experience.  The project engaged the best talent, and the dedicated craftsmen were provided the finest material, creative, and logistical support to do their best work. 

A pristine period-correct restoration integrated state-of-the-art smart technology and environmentally forward reconstruction, which stands as unrivaled in scope and refinement. The collaboration of  Wayne Troyer FAIA, Ross Karsen, Tracie Ashe AIA, Julie Babin and Sandra Tomasetti resulted in a 2016 AIA Louisiana Merit Award.
