Missouri Athletic Club

For more than three decades, the Missouri Athletic Club has been considering renovations to its existing two-story West County fitness building. With a smart and cohesive master plan presented by V3, the MAC is finally on track to transform the 1970s outdated building into a modern fitness experience.

The proposed design includes reconfiguring a portion of the existing racquetball court modules to allow for conversion to other fitness uses including yoga, spin classes, cardio workout rooms, resistance training and youth programming. The existing weight room will be expanded, with the addition of new offices and a two-level viewing lounge that overlooks the newly glazed racquetball courts.

The CORE at Newstead

V Three Studios has partnered with local developers and contractors to revitalize residential housing in the Grove entertainment district, and national media is taking note! The New York Times recently featured one of the modern single-family homes designed by V Three Studios for the CORE @ South Newstead

The featured home in The New York Times’ Real Estate section – 4432 Vista Ave. – is one of forty-six contemporary, high-quality homes that are part of an overall master planned housing project set in motion by Washington University’s School of Medicine and designed by V Three Studios. With open floor plans that work well for entertaining and modern living, the CORE at South Newstead fills the gap in the market for custom homes within the city limits. Details include maintenance free exterior siding, premium windows, vaulted ceilings, custom tile flooring and solid surface countertops.

4432 Vista Ave. gives New Yorkers a glimpse of affordable housing in the in-demand Grove neighborhood, but those looking to stay put in the Empire State are in luck – V3 is licensed in New York, too!

Commerce Bank | Natural Bridge Renovation

Commerce Bank recently celebrated the ongoing transformations to its St. Louis-area branches with a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Natural Bridge branch renovation. Located at 4402 Natural Bridge, this combined renovation and addition is one of the bank’s first local efforts to minimize its footprint while strengthening its presence in a geographic location that is otherwise underserved. 

Looking to consolidate its branch locations to a smaller footprint, Commerce Bank turned to V Three Studios to design a branch that could offer up all the bank’s capabilities from a 2,000-square-foot space. Working with the existing 1,200-square-foot space, V3 helped breathe new life into the very small and complex project by updating interior finishes and incorporating tech-enabled consulting rooms that offer video networking capabilities. This brings all the services Commerce Bank has to offer into a single location by allowing the Natural Bridge branch to access additional expertise offered at other branch and office locations.  Picking up on the architectural cues of the existing building, V3 was able to design exterior additions that maintain the integrity of the building’s original aesthetic. The new wings allow interior spaces to be appropriately scaled and provide a more holistic customer experience. With the successful opening of the Natural Bridge branch, Commerce Bank has shown its commitment to reinvesting in the St. Louis City area. 

Big River Running Company

Big River Running Company, St. Louis’ premier running and shoe apparel company, will soon break ground on a new, 5,000-square-foot retail store in St. Louis’ Town & Country. With a goal of creating a more sophisticated shopping experience, Big River Running turned to V Three Studios and Studio Strelow to help bring the pilot project concept to life. 

The modern design of the store’s interior has several features, including floating waved Corian shoe display walls, a large built-in video display wall for a variety of content, and a custom ceiling feature that is inspired by rivers that have shaped the city of St. Louis. The completion of this store is planned for mid-summer and hopes to expand the new brand and shopping experience. 

KTNN 660 AM - The Voice of the Navajo Nation

KTNN 660 AM radio in St. Michaels, Arizona, has proudly served as “The Voice of the Navajo Nation” for over 30 years. Broadcasting from St. Michaels, Arizona, KTNN’s digital capabilities reaches listeners beyond reservation lines, providing Navajo people across the country, and even overseas, with a connection to home. Looking to upgrade its facility and technological capabilities, KTNN experienced a series of unsuccessful starts to designing and building a new broadcast studio before turning to V Three Studios for a solution. 

The design of the 9,000-square-foot facility maintains the integrity of the tribe’s traditional culture, yet reflects modern elements that are critical to the station’s purpose of educating, informing and entertaining the Navajo people, many of whom rely on the station as the only source of news and entertainment. The interior features eight studios supporting AM/FM radio and digital broadcast. Glass is incorporated throughout the media center in order to create an open space and direct interface with its listeners. As a community-driven operation, user-friendly technology was installed in order for both older and newer generations of the tribe to be able to use it intuitively. Indigenous wood ceiling elements and textiles were selected by V Three and used in new and interesting ways to maintain visual connectivity to the Navajo culture. These final touches implement V Three’s response towards radio station facility design, establishing KTNN as a force in this dynamic age of media evolution.
