The redevelopment of a 1927 Catholic School
building, connected to the Mater Dolorosa Church and located in the
New Orleans Uptown neighborhood, converted them into
affordable elderly apartments. The building is owned by Christopher Homes, a
program of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, which provides
low-income housing to elderly and handicapped residents.
Architectural details of the school house including high ceilings and large windows, classroom doors
and transsoms were preserved during the renovation to create a
unique residential space.
