Surrounded by a thriving restaurant and club district in New Orleans’ CBD, 308 S. Diamond, like a lot of historically rich real estate in the area, lived a previous life as an abandoned warehouse. Williams Architects’ innovative skills were sought to collaborate with the client’s approach of wanting to keep the character of the building while renovating the interior to accommodate a restaurant in line with their nationally recognized brand. We cultivated a cohesive working relationship with their branding architect to conceptualize and design an interior that not only met and exceeded their standards but adhered to local and state requirements as well. Our expertise was also called upon to oversee the submission and correspondence with the State Historic Preservation Office and National Park Services for state and federal tax credits.
