Our team was proud to bring home two awards from AIA St. Louis on Friday night: Distinguished awards for Bulrush and LeBao Asian Eatery. Both projects were a combination of our design and build talents: Bulrush was a design-build turnkey project, and, for LeBao in Columbia, MO, our team provided the general contractor with custom fabricated pieces, including the banquette seating, steel bartops and drink rails, and the signature ceiling cladding.

We’d like to thank our wonderful clients, Chef Rob Connoley of Bulrush and Chef Jina Yoo for trusting us with the design of their newest endeavors, all while being fun design partners to boot. We appreciate the talented subcontractors who go the extra mile every day, and our own team of fabricators, craftsmen and construction supervisors, the often unsung heroes who bring our designs to life in exacting detail. And, of course, thank you to the jurors who found as much joy and care in our projects as we put into each one of them. Cheers, and we look forward to more great things ahead.
