Where's Monkey: Reading the Ste. Genevieve Herald

We caught monkey relaxing on the job in one of our favorite chairs, a lounge chair designed by Ray and Charles Eames in 1956, reading the latest copy of the Ste. Genevieve Herald.  The paper highlights one of our newest projects, the renovation of a historic building in downtown Ste. Genevieve for use by the Parish and Valle Catholic Schools, as Vessel presented the design to the Landmarks Historical Committee.  Click here to read the article.

The project known as the Rozier Building Renovation is a 28,000 sf renovation of a 1920's furniture store with a five and dime addition to the side and a grocery addition in the back.  The new design will feature a much needed exterior clean up that will open up several large windows that have been covered over.  On the interior, the building will feature a large parish gathering space, an early childhood center with preschool and kindergarten rooms and a large interior play space, the St. Vincent de Paul mission, and several school related spaces, such as band, drama, and weight room.

The Ste. Genevieve community has received the design warmly and everyone is looking forward to re-establishing this building as a main street landmark!
