821 Baronne Street
historic renovation | new orleans, LA
WDG provided architectural, interior design, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering design for the historic renovation to 821 Baronne Street, a two-story retail building in the former “auto alley” of the New Orleans South Market District. The 12,800 square foot building was redesigned for commercial office space (used by WDG | Architects Engineers) with lease space for two retail tenants on the first floor. The completed building features exposed brick walls, an open-air office environment with a modular wall partition system, and a conference room set in a former automotive elevator, which was suspended in place. HVAC spiral duct systems, conduit systems, and structured communications cabling systems are exposed to view, and were selected and arranged to complement and highlight the contemporary industrial design concept of the office.
