Built in 2009, Tulane Schools of Architecture’s URBANbuild students constructed this unique contemporary home on Seventh Street to combat blight in Central City during the neighborhood’s post-Katrina recovery. Apartment Therapy featured this home and its current owner Tami Hills, the owner of Nola Clutter Busters, LLC, in a December of 2017 house tour. Hills describes her home as “sexy,” and named it after the 1968 sci-fi film Barbarella.

Its asking price is $291,000.

This modern home sits on a 3,117-square-foot corner lot. Street artist MTO created its mural entitled Hope, which is visible on the side of this home. An open sitting porch that’s covered by movable panels sits at its facade.

Marked as LEED certified, we love this homes open floorplan. It has exposed beams, ceiling fans, pendant lighting, and an oversized bookshelf. Its kitchen is open and its shared dining space’s splash of color is satisfying.

At 1,396 square feet, this home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

A large, covered porch with movable panels and a ceiling fan sit at this home’s rear. You’ll also find a sizable backyard and detached storage.
