The Third Annual Renaissance Awards

New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles and the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans honor six renovations — three homes and three businesses — that celebrate the new while respecting the old.

If home is where the heart is, New Orleanians can surely feel the pulse. Rarely does one see the dichotomy of rebirth and tradition that New Orleans exhibits in its people, its culture, its food and especially its architecture. We strive to maintain the original character that makes this city unique while also embracing modernity and functionality in a time of necessary rebuilding.

New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles and the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans are proud and privileged to honor those who exhibit the qualities of restoration and heritage in their homes and businesses. The third annual Renaissance Awards will acknowledge these members of the community on Friday, Oct. 22, 2010, in the Grand Ballroom at the Ritz-Carlton at a luncheon featuring Pamela Fiori, editor-at-large of Town
& Country, as the keynote speaker.

These honored buildings are more than homes and businesses; they are labors of love, works of art and permanent testaments to the individuality of their owners and the city. Despite hurricanes, the economy and the countless other obstacles that try to hold New Orleans back, these buildings are tangible proof of our own local renaissance and the people who make it possible.


Editor’s Note: Two additional winning homes, those of Erika
and Jude Olinger and Sen. and Mrs. Joel Chaisson, will be featured in our next issue.
