Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 - Sexton Cottage

A sexton is a person who looks after a church and churchyard, sometimes acting as bell-ringer and formerly as a gravedigger. At the historic Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 in New Orleans, a new sexton cottage design was proposed to be built on the exiting footprint. The challenge of this project was to negotiate the proposed design into the rich historic context by capitalizing on the perceived differences in materiality and scale between the existing and the proposed.
