Breaux Bridge, Louisiana
Design a mix-use neighborhood governed by the tenants of the Congress for New Urbanism in a small southern town.
The Lakes on the Teche is designed to provide a wide range of housing types and sizes all fitting architecturally within the bounds of traditional southern style. A design code provides flexibility across five housing districts utilizing ten distinct southern home styles. From Estate homes along the historic Bayou Teche, to Garden homes with porches and picket fences, to Townhomes near the commercial district, residents of The Lakes are able to choose from a diverse set of offerings. With many of the home sites designed as rear alley access, the streetscapes within the neighborhood provide a pleasant tree-lined living experience along with the four parks dedicated for common use.
The commercial district provides banking, medical, restaurants, retail and entertainment venues giving residents of the town and of the neighborhood pedestrian access to a wide range of services.
