Conceptual and Planning

Location: Sidney Street, Benton Park Neighborhood, St.Louis, MO

Our design transforms the historic St. Agnes Church into a Banquet Hall, with a full interior renovation, addition of a catering facility, and an outdoor seating area. Since the interior space is open and airy, it is flexible for many different events and seating arrangements. The interior renovations would include new finishes and lighting and the addition of restrooms to accommodate a large event.  The exterior patio will serve as an outdoor reception area. Surrounded by trees, shrubs, fountains, and flowers, the patio will become a garden. St. Agnes already has a unique historical atmosphere and with a few changes and updates it will become a very optimal place for events.

The JeffVanderLou Initiative was a comprehensive planning process to revitalize the north St Louis neighborhood bounded by Jefferson on the east, Vanderventer on the west, Natural Bridge on the north, and Martin Luther King to Delmar on the south. Killeen Studio served as local design consultant to Urban Design Associates of Pittsburgh. The Initiative was organized into four subcommittees: education, health and human services, economic development, and housing and infrastructure. Each subcommittee was made up of neighborhood leaders, technical consultants, and most importantly, people who live and work in the JeffVanderLou neighborhood. These subcommittees were responsible for guiding the design team toward a physical plan for revitalization. The physical plan was developed through a three-phase process: Phase 1 Documentation analysis Understanding existing conditions Understanding historical structure of the neighborhood Phase 2 Two major design workshops Explore design alternatives Study overall layout of streets and parks Review specific design concepts Phase 3 Complete Master Plan Complete Design Team Report The plan's major theme called for infill housing which matched the architectural integrity of the historic homes still standing as well as mixe-use buildings at major interstections. It was further suggested that construction begin in a concentrated area to send a clear message to neighbors and potential developers that revitalization was underway.
