Eskew Dumez Ripple Completes Hogs House at the Children's Hospital of New Orleans

Eskew Dumez Ripple recently completed the 8,200-square-foot Hogs House at the Children's Hospital of New Orleans. The project is essentially a residence for loved ones of patients undergoing treatment at the Children's Hospital.

Thirteen suites provide space for families who need to stay overnight. In addition to bedrooms, there's a mix of communal space to promote interaction between families and create a community of support within the house. Facilities include a kitchen and dining facilities, cheerful rooms for socializing, and management areas.

The design pays homage to the primary benefactor, local nonprofit Hogs for the Cause, with a pig theme scattered throughout. The project is located within a Georgian Revival building, originally part of the 1930s former U.S. Marine Hospital.
