Project Spotlight – Heritage House

Every space in this historic residence is incredibly unique! The focus of this Srote & Co interior design project was retaining the fundamental nature and character of the original historic brick house built in 1904, while updating it to meet the functional needs of today’s active family.

These areas, which include the foyer, parlor, study, butlers pantry, and powder room underwent complete restorations/renovations while honoring and maintaining the history of the home. The new bar and upper wine cellar are housed in the original kitchen. The new kitchen, breakfast room and great room are nestled within the home’s new addition with high, twenty-foot ceilings, creating a design challenge with high ceilings.

While the existing portion of the home is largely used when entertaining, an expansion of living space was added to the rear of the residence to accommodate the family’s daily activities including the primary bedroom and bathroom, kitchen, pantry, formal powder room and great room. Special attention was paid during the material and millwork specification process to seamless blend the old with the new.

Project Spotlight – Corner Coalesce Retreat

Our architecture team was proud to design this traditional, cottage inspired home nestled seamlessly within a developed residential location in St. Louis County. Our challenges included a narrow corner lot, building height and corner lot setback restrictions. This Srote & Co designed residence is what lot specific, custom home design is all about.

A mostly brick exterior with cut stone entry surround and entry terrace gardens help create a cozy feel even before entering the home.

The layout was tailored to this corner lot and oriented to take full advantage of southern sun in the rear courtyard and pool terrace area while also providing backyard privacy.
