Design With Dignity

New Orleans Habitat is thrilled to present our first new house plans in more than a decade. These plans are designed in a more responsive way, taking feedback and inspiration from Habitat homeowners, broader design trends, and the ways COVID has affected how we live.

We have added a back porch and more depth to front porches so it is easier to physically distance while also remaining in community. We have also added a second bathroom to our standard 3-bedroom build, and we are beginning to offer an even more affordable 2-bedroom option for individuals just starting out.

“Bell Architecture is proud to have partnered with New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity for over twenty years and on over five hundred homes,” said Michael Bell of Bell Architecture. “We are particularly excited about the current opportunity to develop home designs and to optimize those designs for the current environment.”

“We’re thankful for this partnership with Bell Architecture,” said Marguerite Oestreicher. “The gift of their time, solid advice, and talent over the years has been invaluable. The homes they have designed understand the needs of Habitat homebuyers.”
