Shortly after the Shotgun [Remix] project won the AIA’s Designing Recovery competition, St. Bernard Project (SBP) commissioned GOAT to further develop the design for affordable construction.  SBP is a local non-profit that has been active in the post-Katrina re-building of New Orleans and has grown to lead efforts in South Carolina, Texas, Missouri and West Virginia.


In 2015, construction started on three GOAT-designed prototypes in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans. A contemporary re-interpretation of the classic “shotgun” typology, the St. Roch Avenue houses signify a new chapter in New Orleans’ rich architectural story.
