Facility Renovation
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri
St. Louis, MO

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri commissioned KAI to renovate their St. Louis facility. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a world wide mentoring organization that changes the lives of children through trusting and enduring relationships. KAI considered it a privilege to provide architectural and interior design services for the 3,600 SF renovation of a portion of the first floor of their headquarters facility on North Grand Boulevard in St. Louis. The new space includes a lobby and multi-purpose event space for the Bistro located on the rooftop.

KAI was also responsible for the design of a cocktail bar for pre-event gatherings, a fully sufficient catering kitchen, neutral lighting, material and color palette compatible with other areas of the space not within the scope of this project, and the location of video/television screens for presentations for those utilizing the event space.
