Italianate Shotgun Style House
Common in New Orleans, Louisiana.
In the 19th century the architectural styles and motifs of the Italian Renaissance were commonly pulled from creating the Italianate style.
The most popular element of this style, the ornate brackets on the tops of shotgun, as well as many other types,
of houses are seen all over New Orleans. Molded or carved quoins (small raised blocks on the corners,) hipped roofs, symmetrical facades, and arched window and hood moldings are other common characteristics of this style.
