Wedged Between Concrete

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

“Starter Home*” is an infill development program, which converts parcels of vacant land within those that are already developed 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 New Orleans neighborhood, this two-story dwelling stands out for its architectural pizzazz: slenderness, angular roof and corrugated-metal cladding.

We have enough real estate. What we need are more gardens.
