The Louisiana Landmarks Society, which promotes historic preservation through education, advocacy, and operation of the Pitot House, announced the winners of the 2016 Louisiana Landmarks Society Awards for Excellence in Historic Preservation. These awards honor projects completed in Orleans Parish (outside of the French Quarter) in 2015 which represent outstanding examples of restoration or rehabilitation of historic buildings. The 2016 Louisiana Landmarks Society Awards for Excellence in Historic Preservation will be presented and celebrated at a program and reception on April 13, 2016. Woodward Design+Build is pleased that two of its projects have been selected for awards. Please find more information below. Giani Building | Woodward Design+Build, Canal at Camp LLC The project combines three disparate buildings at 600 Canal St., 604 Canal St. and 113/117 Camp St. into one, cohesive facility. Underutilized for decades, the building retains ground floor retail and now offers 33 one-bedroom and 10 two-bedroom apartments, along with a three-bedroom penthouse, rooftop deck and swimming pool. The Howard, 833 Howard Ave. | Trapolin-Peer Architects APC, Woodward Design+Build, De la Tour Holdings Presented with a 1926 building with a number of code issues, the design team succeeded in converting a neglected office building into 15 luxury apartments. Sensitivity to the historic building drove all design and construction decisions including a seven-story addition with a footprint of only 600 square feet. Restoration of the original oak floors along with exterior features has returned this iconic structure to use and prominence.
