Inaugural Contemporary Home Tour

  • Modern Market 1200 Annunciation Street New Orleans, LA, 70130 United States (map)

For decades, the Irish Channel and Lower Garden District neighborhoods, nestled just upriver of the CBD, suffered from disinvestment and demolition of their historic built fabric. In recent years, vacant lots have given way to innovative new homes, creating a vibrant neighborhood where 19th-century mansions and shotguns coexist with the best of contemporary design.

The New Orleans Architecture Foundation, in partnership with New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles, invites you to join us Sunday, May 19th for a self-guided tour of contemporary homes which re-knit the fabric of the Irish Channel and Lower Garden District.
