Longue Vue House and Gardens

New Orleans, Louisiana
The Maintenance Plan and Master Plan completed for this important historic house museum and gardens at the edge of New Orleans include both a detailed survey of the entire campus and a strategic plan for the development and growth of the institution. Work resulting from the planning effort includes new staff offices, a new gift shop, restoration of the main house as well as attachments and garden structures, reorganization of roads and parking, and preservation of landscape elements originally designed by Ellen Biddle Shipman. A conditional use permit to address comprehensively Longue Vue’s status and site issues was granted by City Council. This project received an Honor Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects in 1998.
