The Zachary House / Stephen Atkinson Architecture

Site Plan; ©

The story of the Zachary House, designed by Stephen Atkinson Architectureis one of idealism of the profession and faith to the design.  In three iterations, the house that was originally designed for Atkinson’s own parents went from being the incarnation of the architect’s own ideal image, revered by both modernists and traditionalists, to a highly protected “manuscript” of an architectural vision.  The house was originally built in the 90′s in Zachary, Louisiana, where it gained a substantial amount of attention from other residents and the media for its blend of the “dog trot” and “shotgun” style homes.  The house, now in its third life, was built under specific conditions that maintained every element of its distinctive design.
