Karnofsky Tailor Shop Reconstruction

The Karnofsky Tailor Shop at 427 South Rampart Street in New Orleans was destroyed by Hurricane Ida in 2021. This structure and three other extant buildings on the block are all that remains from the street’s historically significant period in the early twentieth century, when the 300 and 400 blocks of South Rampart Street were the epicenter of the creation of jazz music in New Orleans. Studio West was selected by the existing owners to design the reconstruction of the Karnofsky Tailor Shop.
