Mitchell Wall Architect Greg Garrett Chosen To Design Home For Gary Sinise Foundation

We are so proud that Greg Garrett, R.A., Mitchell Wall Architecture & Design has been chosen to be the architect for the newest house being built by the Gary Sinise Foundation.  This is the first home that they are building for a first responder, rather than a veteran. Greg was chosen among the many that applied.

Every year we donate our services to a need in St. Louis.  Last year, it was Haven of Grace.  In 2017, we will be donating our architectural services to this very worthwhile cause.

As Greg says,

“I am honored and humbled to have been selected by the Gary Sinise Foundation to be the architect for the new house that will be built for injured Ballwin Police officer Michael Flamion and his family.

This tragedy struck very close to home for me, as a resident of nearby Manchester, and as soon as I heard that the Gary Sinise Foundation was going to do this project, I could not wait to offer my time to help.

I look forward to working with the Foundation during the course of the next several months to help this become a reality.  Hopefully we can help bring some comfort to the Flamion family as they continue to mend.”

Custom Designed Wall Covering by Tom Wall wins Best in Competition

When Tom found out he was going to be a father again, he got right to work.  He custom designed and then produced this graphic skyline, which serves as the wall covering for one side of the nursery.  The coloration of black and white and shades of grey was specifically selected to stimulate the vision of the infant:  in their early development, babies can only see first in black and white and then in greys.

The wall covering depicts an imaginative fictional urban city. The majority of the buildings included in the skyline were created by the architect to represent this fantastic urban environment.  Two of the buildings, however, are real.  The building on the right side, coming up the crib is the Seagram Building  by Mies van der Rohe, an icon of Mid Century Modern Architecture.  Off camera further to the right is the Campanile at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, built in 1951 and designed by Homer Neville and Edward Delk.

Mitchell Wall Featured In May Issue of Architectural Record Magazine

We are honored to have been chosen as a feature in the latest issue of Architectural Record magazine for our work for Parigi Restaurant.

“Named after the Italian word for Paris, Parigi was designed to look as if it were an Italian restaurant in the heart of the French capital. Located instead at the ground level of a luxury apartment building in Clayton, a tiny suburb of St. Louis, the newly opened eatery fuses Italian design inspiration, and leading Italian design brands, with a traditional bistro feel.

Lighting played a large role in achieving that effect. The restaurant’s main space is divided into three zones—the general seating area, private dining, and the bar—with a different lighting scheme corresponding to each. The main dining room, which includes booths at the center and small tables along the expansive storefront windows, features rows of bare LED A-lamps—a nod to Adolf Loos—suspended from brass lampholders along the ceiling. “Exposed bulbs were very commonplace in bistros at the turn of the last century,” explains architect Susan Bower, who led the design team at locally based firm Mitchell Wall. “They also work here to provide spherical illumination and bounce light up to show off the ceiling posters.”
