Olive Street Redevelopment
Site: St. Louis, MO, United States
Status: Conceptual Design
Client: Olive West Development
The Olive Street Redevelopment design takes three existing buildings and reconfiguring them to new programmatic conditions that open up to the community. The new design transforms the urban context by interfacing the artificial with the natural, creating a diverse ecology. This urban planning and landscape allows more robust environment that will bring people, flora and fauna together to experience nature within the city.
The Olive Street Redevelopment design brings back urban life into an empty city by creating synergy with public programs (playgrounds, TV studio, gardens, bee keeping, bird observatory, butterfly sanctuary and library) and privatized programs (housing, cafes, restaurants, galleries and food truck depot).
