HoUSES for NEW ORLEANS
       
     
 As a consequence of our work on a sustainable neighborhood plan for Plum Orchard, New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina (See Planning), our local partner, ACORN Housing, commissioned GANSstudio and DARTarchitecture to jointly design a variety of new housing types for over 350  properties in New Orleans East and The Lower Ninth.

 The houses are designed to accommodate a variety of family arrangements and relationships to the ground, which is key to their use in flood plains. They also come with a choice in roofline. 
       
     
 The houses are designed to be either pre-fabricated or stick built, given the competing needs for mass production but also employment of local labor.
