Knox and Steen

Project Name:  Mr. and Mrs. Rick Knox and Marian Steen Residence
Location:  Creve Coeur, Missouri
Owner/Developer:  Orlando Contracting
Completion Date:  June, 1997
Size:  2100 SF gut renovation, and freestanding artist studio
Cost:  $200,000
Description:  This project for local artist Marian Steen featured a total renovation of the existing residence.  The outdated interior was revamped into a transitional style to blend with the existing architecture, yet provide a hint of contemporary design to reflect the artist’s personality.  The design provided gallery type spaces to view the artwork, while retaining the comfortable spatial qualities of home.  Special lighting and art niches were created to complement the art displays.  Combining two bedrooms and bath created a master bedroom suite.  The poolside artist studio design features large windows and open space for flexibility.
