Design Masters

Photographed by greg miles

This year, New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles recognizes 10 Design Masters whose combined contributions span seven decades. From renowned architect Albert Ledner, who apprenticed under Frank Lloyd Wright and began designing landmark buildings in the 1950s, to design/build contractor Matthew Kohnke, who, more than half a century later, is working with the changing faces of  local hot spots on Magazine and Freret streets, each has added an important component to the built environment. Whether born and raised here, or transplanted from another city or even another country, we are proud to call them all our own. They are part of what makes New Orleans so remarkable.
