About TerraBella

Moving backward and forward at the same time. It’s a statement seemingly meant for a riddle — but in reality, it’s the philosophy of the New Urbanism movement. This movement has us looking back at the great cities of our past and reviving what made them work. Intimate scale. A village square. Green space. These were the things that created such a strong sense of community throughout these towns. And by reintroducing them, New Urbanists hope to bring the same strengths into the present.

New Urbanism and a return to the traditional neighborhood are the motivation behind architect Steve Oubre’s village plan for TerraBella. Oubre’s vision is an answer to the promise of the Northshore that has been unfulfilled by the builders of suburbia. Public spaces mingled with homes, parks, and footpaths all lined with front porches and gardens. It’s an accessible way of life that takes cars out of the equation and keeps them in back lanes and garages, and puts the charming Southern architecture front and center, just as it should be. And while it’s the architecture that initially catches the eye, it’s the idea of moving backward and forward that creates a better way of life for generations to come.


That word best describes the talented people, whose vision for a better life and a better lifestyle, plan, design and execute every detail that makes TerraBella the Northshore’s most unique and sought after neighborhood. Our distinguished visionaries are:

Steve Oubre - Town Planner

A town planner and architect, Oubre has practiced architecture since 1976 and co-founded his own company, Architects Southwest, in 1980. The firm specializes in urbanist development in cultural architecture, and in educational and campus planning. His work throughout the Gulf South has received design recognition at the local, regional, and national levels. His current focus is on urbanist projects in Louisiana (most notably, The Village of River Ranch in Lafayette), Mississippi, Texas and Arkansas. He is popular with groups like The Audubon Society, as well as with developers, because he has shown that development costs can be minimized, and at the same time, an environmentally sensitive product can achieve the quality of life that is extremely attractive to home buyers.
