Baltzell Building wins Honor Award at the AIA Louisiana Design Awards Gala

On Friday, September 27th, AIA Louisiana celebrated its 75th Anniversary with an Awards Gala at the U.S. Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. Several members of the H/S team were there to accept the Honor Award recognizing the design of the Baltzell Building.

Congratulations to our great team and especially to all who worked on this project!


Baltzell Building was entered into the Restoration / Rehabilitation / Adaptive Re-Use Category

– Careful use of color

– This design takes a mundane building and makes it very special

– Exterior façade has datums that wrap into the interior to create an integrated design

the maximizes usable area

– The new work does not clash with the original building. It is as though the original

architect was re-hired to design the renovation decades later

– There is great economy whose moves all add up
