    South City Deck

    My golf/whisky/cigar/foody friend Henry needed some outdoor attention given to his, and his lovely wife jane’s south city bungalow. Like most homes in the neighborhood, their house had a back sunroom that they wanted to keep and build off of. With the (talented) help of her father, Joe, we built them a simple 250 sq […]

    Richmond Heights Home

    On a steep and narrow, overlooked lot in Richmond Heights, MO we built a modern house. Being the Midwest, and as the first ground-up project in our young firm’s portfolio, we had to work hard for it.

The sizing was based on the minimum dimensions needed to accept two magazines, side by side, in the front recess. With a bed-facing cavity for an alarm […]

    Book Shelves on Wheels

    We were left with a bunch of appleply cutoffs from the MMA Workstation Project. The guys at MMA wanted to put it to use. Joining the ‘scrap’ material to form sections 26″ wide, we hid the glue-up seams by laminating each to match the workstations. The four, beefy, steel sections were fabricated at the new […]

    Eyeroc

    When the client came to us with the idea for a huge, translucent, glowing feature wall the answer was ‘yes, yeah, that sounds good, lets do that.’ We quickly formed a plan to fabricate this thing with super-tight tolerances by use of water-jet. We were also able to avoid the outrageous propriety plastic prices by […]

    Chestnut Table

    When asked to produce a table for a client with more traditional, ‘restoration hardware’ style, we worked through a bunch of design options before producing this one. Built from reclaimed chestnut barnwood and steel tube that was chemically etched to resemble antiqued bronze, the finishes complement those in the client’s home, while the simple, geometric […]

Their vision included these OSB-structured ‘whale bones’ as well as a few other custom metal pieces. We worked to detail, prototype, fabricate, and install these custom ‘ribs’ along with the reception […]
