Rising Sun Homes

Rising Sun is an affordable housing project located in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans.

Project Size: 1,471 - 1,514 SF
Location: New Orleans, Louisiana

Rising Sun Development consists of four new construction homes. In researching the area and its surroundings, ClS Architects decided to introduce two different building types for this development. A two-story model was used for the corner lot and a one-story model was used for the rest of the infill lots. The concept behind using the two-story model on the corner was to anchor the street while staying consistent to the neighborhood aesthetics. The two-story model has a total of 1,514 square feet. The one-story model has a total of 1,471 square feet.
