Next House (final)
319 Jackson St. Lafayette, LA
The Next House was designed by myself and other six University of Louisiana at Lafayette Architecture graduate students and was be built by students and King Contractors, Inc. in the summer of 2012. The home is the second project in the Neighborhood Infill housing Program initiated by the LPTFA, Ragin Cajun Facilities, Inc. and UL Lafayette. Within walking distance from downtown Lafayette, the 319 Jackson Street location is ideal for inhabitants seeking a neighborhood with established seasoning and background. The Next House provides the finest space for a contemporary lifestyle amid a rich and thriving culture. The Next House is a seamless integration of public and private space. Perfect for socially active inhabitants, the Next House offers a private retreat that transforms into an impressive public space through simple intervention. By opening two doors to the outdoor porches, the entire public space becomes a single room open to the community. Open ceilings in the bedrooms alongside a second story loft in the living room allow the Next House to be simultaneously fitting for functions such as personal office work or a celebratory crawfish boil.
