Creating a Place for Reflection in Today’s Culture

Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, Kenrick School of Theology, St. Louis, MO

Situated within a park-like setting in a St. Louis suburb is the college and graduate theology school for Kenrick-Glennon Seminary. The renovation and expansion of the historic 1931 library building is conceived of as a contemporary intervention — each respecting the existing architectural character while transforming space in a sensitive manner.

The expansion sits quietly within the overall context and scale of the existing buildings, delicately connecting new and old together while creating a new courtyard and student rooftop dining space.
