Barker Residence                                    Kitchen/Breakfast Renovation
Ladue, MO                                               Family Room  & Porch Addition

An addition to this brick home in Ladue gave the owners the extra living space they desired and solved several deficiencies:

  • A “back” door from the driveway provides a gracious guest entrance. It actually functions as the front door since a lack of street parking on this corner lot restricts access to the front of the house.
  • A mudroom disguised as a Foyer transitions to the Family Room addition, to the renovated Kitchen and to the Garage. Functional storage and closet space conceals clutter.
  • Load-bearing walls were removed to visually open the Kitchen to the Dining Room and to the addition so the cook stays connected with family and friends.
  • A new corner window in the L-shaped Kitchen views the back yard.
The spacious Family Room addition provides a cheerful, informal setting for multiple family activities.

Private Residence                                                 Master Suite Addition

Olivette, MO                                                           Foyer & Front Porch Addition

                                                                                 Kitchen/Breakfast Renovation                                                                                    

                                                                                         

This 50’s ranch home suffered from a choppy floor plan and a lack of space. Removal of the fireplace and wall between the original kitchen and dining room solved the owner’s desire for an open plan conducive to entertaining. A new front porch and Master Suite addition on the front of the house gave this once nondescript ranch a transformative facelift.

Combs Residence                                                   Sunroom Addition

Chesterfield, MO                                                    Patio & Spa Addition

 

Our Client wished to renovate the existing first floor and add a Sunroom so that the entire area would function as a cohesive entertainment space. We first removed the ‘70s style bar which separated the existing Family Room & Kitchen/Breakfast areas. This area became a connector between the Sunroom Addition & the existing living space. Large sliding glass walls open to connect the Sunroom to the new Patio and outdoor Kitchen. Stairs access a Spa at the walk-out lower level.

Adams Residence                                           Kitchen/Breakfast Renovation,

Creve Coeur, MO                                           Family Room & Deck Addition,

                                                                           Master Suite Renovation


 

Feeling a bit cramped in their 3-bedroom ranch and dispirited in a dark kitchen, the Adams engaged Anton Architecture to reinvent their home. The project was completed in two phases. The first phase features a sunny kitchen renovation opening to a new Breakfast/Family Room addition. A new deck off the Family Room further extends the living and entertaining space. The second phase creates a spacious main level Master Suite and renovates the bedrooms and bathroom in the walk-out basement. The entrance Foyer was expanded and a successful zoning variance request permitted a new front porch.

McMackin Residence                                                2nd Floor Addition

Richmond Heights, MO                                          Kitchen Renovation

                                   

For this project, we provided the Client two design options:

  • renovating the existing 2nd floor which occupied the attic
  • razing/rebuilding the 2nd floor

The Client chose the completely reconstructed 2nd floor which offered a much improved layout for slightly more money than the renovated 2nd floor option. The reconstructed option also allowed us to significantly improve the insulation values of the new roof and walls.

Webster Groves, MO                                            Garage Addition                                                      

A 1-car garage was removed to provide space for an attached 2-car Garage plus a Workshop and 2nd Floor living space above it. The 2nd Floor addition includes a Master Suite, two Bedrooms, two Baths, a Laundry and a Family Entertainment Room.

Clarkson Valley, MO                                                      Facelift

A Front Porch addition and new windows, siding & trim gave immediate curb appeal to this nondescript house. We secured a zoning variance through the City of Clarkson Valley to allow the front porch addition.

Kerr Residence                                                  Breakfast/Coffee Bar Addition

Rolla, MO                                                           Kitchen Renovation

                                                                                   

Expanding the house’s footprint into the back yard permitted ample space for the renovated Kitchen & Breakfast areas plus a new Coffee Bar. A walk-in Pantry & Mudroom were added. A Laundry Room replaced the laundry closet and a 3-car Garage replaced the smaller one.

Williams Residence                                       Kitchen & Mudroom Addition

University City, MO

                                      

                                                 

The homeowner desired a larger Kitchen with a visual connection to the existing Family Room. Note that the existing kitchen is cramped and isolated. A small bump-out towards the driveway allowed a user-friendly Kitchen and Mudroom addition. The wall between the Kitchen & Family Room was removed to integrate the entire space.

Hoke Residence                                                     Master Suite/Porch Addition

Olivette, MO                                                            Kitchen/Breakfast Renovation

                                                                                   

A ground floor Master Suite addition to this traditional two-story home will allow the owners to retire in place. The addition has its own front door and is connected to the existing house with a small living room with a fireplace, allowing it to function initially as a mother-in-law suite.

Binion Residence                                                    Whole house renovation

St. Louis, MO

                                                

This renovation demonstrates how we were able to improve a house’s layout and add a bedroom on the second floor without increasing the floor area. The trick was to relocate the stairway to the center of the house, thus converting hallway area into Bedroom area. The first floor enjoys a more spacious and open living plan.

Quirk-Williamson Residence                       Master Suite, Family Room Addition

Creve Coeur, MO                                        Screen Porch and Patio Addition

                                                                                                                       

The addition to the front of this modest ranch house gives it a dramatic street presence. Crisply detailed, it blends comfortably with the neighborhood. Circulation was improved by relocating the entrance and adding a Foyer. Originally constructed as a slab house, it lacked storage. The addition is constructed over a new basement accessed from a new stairway off the Foyer.

Kirkwood, MO

Sliment Residence                                            Master Suite Renovation

Glendale, MO                                                    Kitchen/ Hearth Room Addition                                                      

This Client, who approached us with the notion of adding a bathroom to create a 2nd floor Master Suite, was pleasantly surprised when we were able to design a 1st floor Master Suite instead. A small breakfast nook was razed to provide space for a new Kitchen / Hearth Room and a new Mudroom & Laundry.

Blackburn Residence                                                                Facelift

Webster Groves, MO                                                              Front Porch


The Blackburns were attracted to this house in Webster for its functional layout, but were dissatisfied with its nondescript street presence. We transformed it with an economical facelift which included a new Front Porch.

Weisman Residence                              Master Suite & Kitchen Renovation

Olivette, MO                                            Entrance Foyer & Front Porch Addition                                                                                                                                                

A simple Front Porch and Foyer addition to this home give it a sense of entry and curb appeal. The Foyer provides functional closet space and an elegant transition to the existing living space. French doors on each side of the entrance Foyer connect covered patios to the existing Living Room and Dining Room. The patios provide indoor-outdoor entertaining opportunities and a place for the avid-reading owners to enjoy their books.
