  • Eskew enjoys some of the bestand most unlikelystudio space in New Orleans. The firm established its studio on the 31st floor of an office building in 1999. Before that, Eskew occupied the third floor of a riverfront building on the edge of the French Quarter. The difference between a French Market walk-up and Class A office space is smaller than one might think, says Dumez. We really connected to the street and the activity of the French Quarter. We felt the pulse of the city directly. We heard it. We could smell it, he says.


    Six years out from Katrina and six years away from New Orleans's tricentennial, Eskew+Dumez+Ripple is rebuilding the City That Care Forgot.
