WINNER 2018 AIA ST. LOUIS CRAFTSMANSHIP AWARD

ARNOLD MASONRY

on Arnold Masonry: To blend a new stone structure into a structure that has been in existence for over 100 years takes a special craftsman… One is hard pressed to see what was new and what was added.

In an effort to preserve the neighborhood character, scale, and streetscape, CORE10 connected two existing residences together to form the new student center for the church.  The street faces were unchanged, while the backs of the houses were transformed into a new circulation hub, organized around a new courtyard, playground, and connection to a new parking garage.  The interior was completely transformed into a modern, fresh space for teens to fellowship, worship, and learn together in a cafe, auditorium, and classrooms. And the masonry design and workmanship have been hailed as "expert" in the spring 2015 issue of Masonry.
