Another Deep South Master

Another architect doing great work in the South is Ken Tate from Louisiana.  Ken, who was born in Mississippi, studied at Auburn.  His work is spectacular.  Ken, as others I have covered, does an incredible job of reinterpreting historic works to fit the homes sites or simply what he sees as fitting.  Each of his projects are unique works that fit incredibly well into their settings.
While I have seen many of his homes in person, this Norman style house I have not but love it.






Here is one of his Creole Compounds he created:




And a Deep South Estancia in Jackson, Mississippi:







Another Creole style house:




I hope you love his work as much as I do.  You can find more of his projects at www.kentatearchitect.com and in his very impressive book, New Classicists, Ken Tate Architect.

I cant say anything, but wow i am amazed absolutely beautiful..

ClassicalArchitect said...

I was lucky enough to have worked for Mr. Ken Tate when I finished my masters at Tulane. His design process always started with a "story" about the houses history, giving the design a firm foundation to develop a sense of place.

These houses are just breath-taking! Love how the architect and designer team was able to re-create such beautiful homes with details from the original period homes, from the flooring to the exposed beams inside, to the courtyard and romantic features. Thank you so much for sharing. Look forward to your comments!

Oh my gosh! I am so happy I stumbled across your blog! I am in love with the subject of your site - such beautiful homes.

The first home at dusk on the water is literally breathtaking. The second home looks a bit Spanish inspired. It reminds me of the California missions we have out here =)

Enormous news! Clued-up post! I am delighted that you have put on sight. Thanks for keep me posted. For more information I will be in touch.

Candie said...

Oh wow, the iron gates took my breath away. They're so lovely when used outdoors in "green" settings like that. When I had my custom iron doors made, that's also what I had in mind, so I did some landscaping and plant decorating on my own. I knew that iron doors belong in gardens, so that's where I had them installed. It's my favorite part of the house now!
