Interior Design

The Mediterranean remodel of this Richmond Heights kitchen brings the soulfulness of Italy to the heart of one St. Louis home. The homeowners wanted to embrace the Old World feel of traditional Italian design. Maintaining the integrity of the home’s original design was top priority.

Space was a concern, so the first priority was to add square footage. Design plans included an additional eight feet to the back of the kitchen and removal of a wall between the kitchen and an adjacent breakfast area to create a sense of openness.

Existing features of the home were incorporated including: arched openings, stucco walls, stained dark brown beamed ceilings and hardwood flooring.

A deep basin farmhouse sink with travertine back splash is topped by a large, arched window overlooking a new patio. A large arched window sits above the sink, which the homeowner notes inspired the remainder of the design. An antique butcher block was given a new top and re-purposed to serve as the kitchen island.

The cabinets are dark brown alder with added distressing, as is the decorative wood front on the French door refrigerator. The light fixtures, cabinet hardware and faucets are oil-rubbed bronze. The owners wanted a hard stone for the counter tops, deciding upon a less common concrete that was transformed into a distressed burgundy to fit the kitchen’s earthy tones and natural appeal. Stucco walls, scattered pottery, dark brown beamed ceilings and hardwood flooring complete the look.

The back patio was also redesigned to compliment the kitchen remodel and expansion.


The renovation of this 1886 factory building created a modern office space for our growing architectural firm. Killeen Studio acted as architect, developer, general contractor and employed historic tax credits to complete this project. The building was originally built by and home to the Lecoutour Bros Stair Mfg Co. In subsequent years 3015 Salena housed an ice cream cone company, a wooden heel manufacturing company, an aluminum siding company and the Continental Lithography Co. Killeen removed office wall partitions which had been installed after the Lecoutour Bros vacated the building. This step restored the floor plan to an open factory layout and gave the building a more spacious, studio feel.

Killeen Studio Architects designed extensive renovations for the 2011 renovation of the Westport Sheraton Lakeside Chalet in St. Louis, MO. The project include new offices, bar area and gift shop, as well as upgrades to the existing lobby, restaurant, kitchen and community areas.

Interior improvements to the downtown Urban Tower and Restaurant, a fast-paced project with a very demanding schedule and technical coordination requirements, as the two building were connected and space was reconfigured on the first and second floors. Changes to the Tower included a new Steak House on the first floor, banquet space on the second floor and residential condominiums on floors 3 - 25. This project was phased to allow the hotel to continue functioning uninterrupted. In addition to design, 3D modeling, and document creation, Killeen Studio Architects also provided construction administration services for this project.

Renovations included new beams added to the first floor to allow for better flow between the kitchen and dining room. A garage was added to the home the following summer.
