This $4.2-million facility, the 300th Ronald McDonald House worldwide, serves as a home away from home for families of critically ill children in the St. Louis area, providing them with everything they might need for their stays, including a great room, playroom and reading rooms.
Scale, form and materials are decidedly residential, from the facility's brick and clapboard facade to its sloped shingle roof.
Ongoing donations of items ranging from wall paint to mechanical components required tight coordination in order to track resulting alterations and deliver a cohesive, aesthetically pleasing building.
