After the damages to St. Bernard Parish brought by Hurricane Katrina, Chase Marshall was commissioned to replace the Entergy Louisiana storage facility in Chalmette, LA. We carefully placed this new building on the site to respond to the diverse nature of the existing context, which includes industrial and residential structures. Creating a front door to the facility, we were able to mediate the enormous scale of equipment and service vehicles that occupy the site 24 hours a day. The building provides storage and service areas at grade and occupied spaces above the current 100-year flood elevation requirements. The materials of the facility represent a careful consideration of image and constructability; the building is clad with two tones of metal panels, which helps mediate scale issues and delineates interior spaces. This project represents the next typology of office spaces that will double as emergency operation centers across south Louisiana.
