St. Michael Special School wins AIA New Orleans Merit Award


On Thursday, November 5th, AIA New Orleans held its annual Design Awards ceremony. Each year their awards program accomplishes three simple, yet invaluable, goals: celebrate the best of this region’s architecture, recognize achievement in a broad range of architectural work, and inform the public of the breadth and value of architectural practice.

This year’s virtual format was livestreamed for all to see on AIA’s YouTube channel. The H/S team was thrilled to receive a Merit Award for St. Michael Special School.

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

St. Michael Special School – Merit Award
“The restoration of the historic building was well done. The delineation between the new and old is complimentary. The student chapel was done with modest means, but the outcome is greater than the sum of its parts. The final project elevates what was there originally.”
