Al Jones Home Featured By American Institute of Architects

A Louisiana home designed by Al Jones Architect, the Baton Rouge based architecture firm of renowned architect Al Jones, is featured today on the national Facebook page of the American Institute of Architects.


The home, located in Meeker, is a recently completed Louisiana colonial style home owned by the Gilchrist family. It’s a home inspired by the original home to the property that was in ruins and was torn down. The Gilchrist family hired Al Jones Architect to design a modern home with all the bells and whistles, but one that appeared to have been on the property for generations.


The A.I.A regularly features unique projects from across the country on their Facebook page ( Today, they featured Al Jones Architect by replacing their large profile image with an image of the Gilchrist home and a note about Al Jones Architect and the home’s design.

Al Jones and his firm designed the home with authentic antique materials, high-quality hand craftsmanship and a whole lot of technology. While the homeowners walk across centuries old flooring underneath antique French chandeliers, they can control nearly every room on the property with their iPhone.
