The French Quarter is home to many historic buildings, among them is the 200-year-old Seignouret-Brulatour House. Through adaptive reuse and historic preservation, the once dilapidated structure is being restored to its original grandeur and converted into a museum. The museum hosts galleries that depict the storied past of the French Quarter, as well as the building’s architectural evolution.

TLC engineered an energy-efficient variable refrigerant flow system for cooling, with the units concealed in the attic or woodwork to not impact the historic elements. Dehumidifiers in the gallery space help control humidity and moisture to preserve the art pieces. Energy efficiency is achieved through the use of part-load operation, LED and dimming light fixtures, and utility metering.
