Creating St. Louis' Favorite Spaces

We are a diverse team of architects, designers, artists and fabricators that creates high-quality customized environments aligning with our client’s brand. We help transform communities through work that is distinctive, creative and meaningful. We love the process of design. Driven by client vision, we develop a strong concept to guide each project. This concept informs everything from space programming and overall budget, to the finest aesthetic detail. Our designs are practical, contemporary, innovative, and functional. By offering a suite of services encompassing strategic planning, interior design, architecture, construction management and fabrication, we can manage and build what we draw. The result is a design-first solution that inspires.

  • “I never realized what a difference a new office would make in our lives! It has transformed so many people’s attitudes! I get emotional when I see what a difference this space has had on the lives of so many of our staff.”

  • “(SPACE) brought our initial vision to life more beautifully than we could ever have imagined. There is absolutely nothing that we would change.”

  • “We’ve come to rely on SPACE for their creative and extremely talented staff of designers and architects. Their attention to detail and follow up is tremendous.”

  • “SPACE brought vision, and the ability to turn that vision into reality for a challenging mixed-use building. They offer a nice balance of delivering creative and practical solutions, not an easy task for many architects.”

  • “Choosing SPACE for both the design and construction of Narwhal’s was one of the most crucial – and best – decisions we made along the way,” says owner Brandon Holzhueter. “They centered on the theme of our narwhal logo and helped us create an interior that was subtly nautical, while keeping it classy and not cheesy. In other words, exactly what we wanted. This location faced many unique challenges, and Tom, Shelley, and the rest of the SPACE team deftly helped us navigate the entire process. We couldn’t be happier with the end result. I love seeing customers come into the bar and look around in amazement, saying ‘his is definitely not what I expected from a frozen drink bar.'”

  • “Most of the offices within our industry are pretty stark, a place that people can’t wait to get out of at 5 o’clock every day,” he continues. “We wanted to change that and be a place to work where people want to spend their time and are excited about the energy a creative space like this creates.”

  • “We were drawn to SPACE because of their extensive experience in designing the area’s top restaurants and their understanding and appreciation of historic preservation,” says Tricia Ferguson, co-owner of Kaldi’s. “We liked that they had done other work similar in scope, but with strong, individual design.”

Beyond Architecture

Creating a space people love is more than architecture. With our 1,500-square-foot fabrication shop, and construction management team, we're always building. This makes us better architects as we meet the challenge of not just great design, but of constructing that design and delivering a great space on time and on budget. You're going to love your space.

Since 2007 we have provided single source turnkey services as an option on select projects. We involve our clients in the competitive bid evaluation and provide the ability to know where every construction dollar is allocated throughout the entire process. By managing construction projects, we gain better understanding of the difficulties contractors can face if provided with an inadequate set of drawings.

At SPACE, we love to push the boundaries of what we can do, consider our changing world of healthcare, education, transportation – how we live, and propose how architecture can impact each of these. Whether for a client, or as a way to deepen our understanding of the world and our community, we’re always exploring what’s possible.
