Cross Quarter is a new single family residence designed for New Orleans LA. Taking cues from traditional forms and proportions like the shotgun house, but raised on piers above the floodzone. The south facing gallery (wrapped porch) provides sun shading for all but the ‘cross quarter’ days between November and February. Cross ventilation, shutters and high ceilings (with fans) also address the heat. The roof is will feature photovoltaic panels.
