Featured Project: Stinson Morrison Hecker
Fox Architects began working for Stinson Morrison Hecker (Stinson) in 1993, when they opened a St. Louis office in the MCI Building (later Deloitte Building) downtown. By an odd coincidence, their new St. Louis office took over part of Fox’s old office – having moved from this space a year earlier to our present offices at 500 Washington. Fox has worked with Stinson since then, growing to take over the entire floor in Deloitte and eventually move to Clayton. In October of this year Stinson will move into 47,000 square feet of new offices Fox has designed in the Centene Tower in Clayton.
From the beginning Stinson has held certain core values that are expressed in the architecture of their offices. They include:
- Enhancing the open exchange of ideas
- Creating an open, light filled, friendly environment
- Using the office environment as a resource to strengthen their practice
The new space carries over some of the planning concepts from the Deloitte office, specifically drawing daylight into the corridors/secretarial staff areas by openings at the ends of the corridors: providing an inner core of support circulation: providing an staff “resource center” where people can meet, grab a quick coffee, sit in the lounge and read or hold an impromptu conference. Below are some images of the space.
