We began our practice with the belief that a strong, clear IDEA, and the synthesis of what seemed to be contradictions between art, utility, and client wishes, was the basis of all good architecture. The realization of an architectural idea in built form, we believed, could only be accomplished through the resolution of the contradictions, not the subordination of one to the other, and through the integration of the multiplicity of issues that informs architectural judgments. Issues of site, climate, culture, technology, history, materials, sustainability, and region, as well as form, are addressed. This belief, we thought, should be foremost in every decision from the largest and most important to the design of the smallest detail. So, late one night in 1988, over a glass of wine at Bar Italia Café in the West End of St. Louis, Royse/Eagleton Architects was born, and sketched on our table napkins were the ideas that became the basis of our first project.

Today, we still try to realize this commitment in all of our work whether the project is of a small scale with a tight budget, as was the case in the Block photographer’s studio or the 99K House, or one of a larger scale with a more generous budget, like the Butterfly Lofts or the Westin Residence.
