Maison Dupuy Hotel Renovations
The Maison Dupuy is a classic French Quarter hotel, with a distinct mixture of history and luxury. Constructed in the early 1970’s to resemble an assembly of historic townhomes surrounding an expansive courtyard, the facility suffered from a poorly designed exterior skin, allowing moisture to enter the building and wreak havoc on the interiors. Holly & Smith Architects was tasked with a complete renovation/ restoration of the exterior, utilizing new, traditional materials including copper, slate, plaster and masonry in keeping with its historic context. The courtyard had seen better days and no longer functioned well for large events. H/S completely redesigned the courtyard to create an inviting and functional space that is now the setting for countless weddings and special events.
