Habitat for Humanity
We believe that a good home is a fundamental component of a good life. So when you work with us on your new home, we will in turn donate architectural services for a Habitat home.
Habitat for Humanity makes homeownership possible for families who are unable to qualify for traditional home loans but have a stable job, good or no credit, and the willingness to contribute 350 hours of sweat equity to the building of Habitat homes.
This non-profit operates a fund to “purchase, stabilize and resell blighted properties” in the Lower St. Charles Corridor. They’ve rescued several beautiful homes and cultivated vibrance in a struggling neighborhood. Our contributions include design of the reconstruction of a 150-year old mansion that was slated for demolition.
Community Sailing Center New Orleans
Community Sailing conducts programs aimed at “eliminating the economic and physical obstacles to sailing for all in the Greater New Orleans Area.” When they needed a facility on Lake Pontchartrain, we supplied them with schematic design services and worked with Mathes Brierre Architects to solidify the vision. Construction is planned for 2017.
