Wedged Between Concrete

A “Starter Home*” in a New Orleans neighborhood.

“Starter Home*” is an infill development program, created by Jonathan Tate, an architect, and Charles Rutledge, a developer, which converts parcels of vacant lands or those that have fallen into disrepair, into small, entry-level homes, no bigger than 975 square-feet.

Wedged between a duplex and a warehouse in a neighborhood, in New Orleans, this two-story home stands out for its architectural style: slenderness, angular roof, and corrugated-metal cladding.

But do we need more real estate? We need more greenery.
