Egret Residence
New Orleans, LA

The 3 bedroom 2 ½ bath house blends contemporary design with the use of traditional materials, featuring hints of arts and crafts influences, and a “practical green” design approach. The two story central hall is washed with natural light from the clerestory above that filters through into the main living areas, reducing the need for artificial light during the day. The master bedroom benefits from the 15 foot window wall allowing soft northern light while minimizing heat gain. The house also features a grid-tied solar panel array & Energy Star appliances and windows.
