This house is located on Foliage Park in the Lake Vista subdivision of New Orleans. Planned in the early 1930's, this lakefront neighborhood is landscaped with parks and lanes along which houses front each other in a spirit of community. Residents befriend each other while children play and walk to school in this ideal enclave. Before the renovation, the bedrooms of this house were along the park side while the living room and kitchen were tucked away within. Studio Kraft flipped this idea and relocated the living room to the park side where it opens it's french doors to the neighborhood. The kitchen now connects to the living room in a open plan, while the Master Bedroom enjoys the privacy of being in the rear of the house.
