Staccato – Midrise Housing, New Orleans, Louisiana

Residential | Staccato – Midrise Housing, New Orleans, Louisiana

This new type of housing block is made with Shell Units stacked one above the other vertically in a seemingly random, yet organized way… One could call it in a Staccato rhythm. Each Housing Shell Unit is a variation on the historical American shotgun house, accessed from one side. The Units occupy the full width of the building.
This housing block is an unstable urban topography above the street.
