The owners of this Ladue residence had a great house in a great neighborhood. The problem was the function. Getting in and out to the garden and driveway - especially in weather - was difficult without getting the floors and shopping bags wet. So we created a highly contextual two-story entry and office addition. Downstairs we repurposed the original flagstone patio as new stone floor. Upstairs we opened the master bedroom wall to a new sunny office space. And all while respecting the traditional details and sophisticated interiors of the original home.
