Lakeport Plantation is the only remaining Arkansas plantation home on the Mississippi River. Quatrefoil approached the project with sensitivity, designing non-invasive elements for rooms sparsely furnished with authentic possessions, and maintaining the house’s austere beauty and historic status. The experience features a strategic use of light and sound to evoke a sense that the house is inhabited, with ethereal images of previous owners seeming to float on the walls and sounds of plantation activity, children playing and a piano emanating from select areas. Lakeport Plantation received a 2013 Award of Merit from the American Association for State and Local History.
