Lawrence Group Presents The 10 Best Design Projects!


Steve Smith, David Ohlemeyer, and Paul Doerner – started Lawrence Group with the vision of becoming a design and construction “super firm.” They named the firm Lawrence Group after Lawrence, Kansas, the home of their alma mater. They envisioned the firm becoming generational in its pursuit of realizing our client’s dreams. Today, the core principle of realizing dreams is a cornerstone of the firm and inspiration for succeeding generations of the firm.



Lewis Collaborative

St. Louis

Throughout the project, the design team made conscious efforts to preserve historic architectural elements and complement them with creative, modern design. Additionally, lighting, landscaping, graphics, and wayfinding were incorporated in the holistic design approach.

School of Government

St. Louis

To enhance the student experience, Lawrence Group’s design team created a welcoming, technology-rich learning environment. Flexible classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology while common spaces throughout the building allow academic and social interaction. New glazing throughout the building maximizes energy efficiency and improves access to natural light, further enhancing the student and faculty experience.


SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Pediatric Specialty Services Clinic

St. Louis

This integrated approach allowed the team to use a complex, constrained site and deliver a holistic experience for a highly flexible program. The clinic provides services for endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, ophthalmology, optometry, orthopedics, ENT, therapy services, psychology, rheumatology, and sports medicine.

Soda Fountain

St. Louis

The Soda Fountain offers a modern-meets-retro diner and candy shop experience, designed to appeal to all ages. Historic details including a newly poured terrazzo entry floor, marble-inspired surfaces, marquee lighting, and custom mosaic floor tiles bring a nostalgic feel to the whimsical concept.


The Train Shed

St. Louis

The Train Shed dining experience features era-inspired materials, ornate patterns, and custom built-in components that complement the building’s original concrete floors and waffle slab ceiling. Modern touches include patron-friendly charging capabilities and a large ribbon media panel spanning the length of the bar.


Blue Bottle Coffee

New York

Lawrence Group worked with Blue Bottle’s brand leadership team to create unique solutions for each location, upholding a sensitivity to the local surroundings for every project. As a parallel exercise with Blue Bottle, the Lawrence Group team has been working to develop a comprehensive prototype for all of the operational systems that make up a café. This includes every functional activity that occurs in a café—from point of sale to pour-over coffee preparation to product delivery. Implementation of the prototype standards will improve the overall ergonomics and efficiency of each café’s workflow and operations.


John Burroughs School S.T.A.R. Building

St. Louis

Lawrence Group was commissioned to do programming and design for the new Science, Technology, and Research Building (S.T.A.R.). The building houses science labs (or clubs), independent research rooms, a library with collaborative study rooms, a maker space, an auditorium, a rooftop greenhouse, engineering labs, robotics, and industrial design labs, as well as 3D printing. Intended to fit contextually within the campus, the new building frames the central quad and minimally impacts the serene campus landscape. The design for the building is targeting LEED® Silver Certification.

SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital Campus Expansion

St. Louis

During pre-planning, the team conducted multiple visioning sessions with physicians, staff, and community members to define strategies and inform the initial design. Full-size patient mock-up rooms further refined design concepts for this 90,000-square-foot patient tower. The team’s careful consideration of the project phasing and constant communication helped minimize the disruption to daily operations.
