Project Overview

It was an honor to be able to photograph this design masterpiece for Ty Larkins Interiors! Below is a description of the details but the interior design images are breathtaking as well.

“This NYC Soho plan meets French Quarter design project, which is located in old established leafy Fort Worth, Texas neighborhood, represents one of only a handful of commissions where our firm designed the architecture as well as the interiors from the ground up. We were initially approached by the clients, a young couple with three young kids, to design a home that represented their native New Orleans. Specifically, the clients had requested a French Quarter style home which would be built on a lot where the clients had torn down an older derelict structure. In an effort to avoid “cliche architecture,” I suggested that we not create a “replica” of the well known New Orleans architecture style but rather, a sort of evolved and modernized version of what a French Quarter home might look like today.

The footprint of the home is laid out in an “L” shape with both upper and lower floors designed to maximize views of the swimming pool, sited in an intimate private walled garden space one might find in the French Quarter today. We also decided to eschew the typical wood framed exterior doors in favor of custom designed steel casement versions to give it a slightly more updated feeling. The piece de resistance of the space is an oversized open living-dining-library room plan where we borrowed characteristics commonly found in grand mansions containing double parlors but the formality of the architecture has been tempered by installing beams on the ceiling to provide the hipness of a open floor-planned NYC Soho loft.

The home has been decorated with a mix of new custom designed upholstery, antiques and vintage pieces representing our firm’s core design philosophy of layering periods and styles to suggest an an interior that has evolved over time versus one just recently installed.”
