The Standard is a residential building in the burgeoning South Market District in New Orleans—a historically industrial neighborhood. From the outside, the building’s design reflects the rhythms and materials of nearby warehouses and former factories. Inside, it offers a cool, contemporary, and creative respite from the city. At street level, the Standard anchors the city’s Arts District with 24,000 square feet of retail space designed to accommodate art galleries and boutique retailers, and a lobby that doubles as a public art gallery and exhibition space. MA Art helped to select artwork for the lobby of the building. Artwork by Windy Chien, Katrine Hildebrant-Hussey, and Donald Martiny.
