NANO makes a conscious effort to always keep space in our workload schedule for pro-bono projects where we can invest time that will have the most impact free of charge. NANO was contacted by Louvis Services, a local non-profit organization in New Orleans whose vision is to provide safe, affordable tiny home duplexes for the homeless community in New Orleans.

NANO welcomed the opportunity to join the partnership with Louvis Services by providing pro-bono architectural design assistance including design and construction drawings, permitting services, and construction administration utilizing sustainability strategies.

The duplex units are designed to incorporate sustainable and local building materials, energy efficient appliances, and an edible landscape program in which tenants can actively participate. Each unit is ADA-compliant to provide accessibility for persons with disabilities. The result of these efforts will be to uphold the mission of Louvis Services: to spark hope, encourage innovation and aid in developing financial stability and emotional well-being for our New Orleans homeless community.
