Saint Louis

Lawrence Group was founded in St. Louis in 1983 and is named for the city where three of the founding partners attended college together at the University of Kansas. Today, the firm has a staff of over 160, including registered architects, interior designers and LEED accredited professionals in five locations.

Our mission – to help our clients realize their dreams – has remained consistent since our founding and remains the focus of everything we do. Actively seeking to understand our clients’ dreams, values and goals and then working aggressively to achieve them is the foundation of our firm.

In addition to our extensive design and development experience, Lawrence Group also operates Niche, a retail home furnishings store at the corner of Olive and Broadway, and Alumni Saint Louis Restaurant at 13th and Pine in downtown St. Louis.

At Lawrence Group, we have an owner’s mentality, and we understand our fiscal responsibility in the success of any project.
