Some of his more notable commissions include the Casino in New Orleans City Park, Our Lady of the Lake Sanitarium in Baton Rouge, and the New Edwards Hotel in Jackson, Mississippi. The office was successfully continued by Nolan's son, Ulisse, eventually working in partnership with other architects.
