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.
Today, the three completed houses are home to three happy, growing families and GOAT continues to develop contemporary, affrordable housing prototypes for New Orleans neighborhoods.
