Sun Theater Historic Renovation

St. Louis, MO

Lawrence Group completed the renovation of the historic 26,000-square foot Sun Theater, converting it into a performing arts center and additional classrooms for the adjacent Grand Center Arts Academy. The Academy will host special events in addition to its curriculum of theater, dance and music.

Lawrence Group worked closely with several contractors to salvage and make more than 30 different plaster molds. In addition to the main building structure, many interior details were salvaged from the original theater including two rows of four original seats and one marble staircase. Lawrence Group provided architecture, interior design, development, financing and construction for this unique icon in the Grand Center Arts District.
