Trivers Wins Palladio and Landmarks Most Enhanced Awards

Created on

Trivers, which has led the renovations of more than 100 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, is the honored recipient of two preservation awards.

Last month, Trivers was awarded a 2023 Palladio Award for Public Spaces: Parks, Plazas, Gardens, Streetscapes for our restoration of the Turkish Pavilion and Old Playground Pavilion in Tower Grove Park. Officially opened to the public in 1872,  Tower Grove Park has been characterized as the largest and best-preserved 19th-century Gardenesque style city park in the United States.

Produced by Traditional Building, the Palladio Awards are the first and only national awards program for projects demonstrating excellence in traditional design; recognizing designers whose work enhances the beauty and humane qualities of the built environment through creative interpretation and adaptation of classical and traditional design principles.

The Dogwood, the acclaimed catering and event space in the heart of St Louis’ bustling Grove neighborhood, was a proud recipient of Landmark Associations’ Most Enhanced Award earlier this month. In partnership with renowned boutique caterer The Social Affair, Trivers helped to transform the 1941 single story former Kroger grocery store into a premier, chic and bespoke event space. Encompassing both floors and connected by a custom elliptical staircase as the facility’s main focal point, Trivers transformed the space into a captivating contemporary rendition of a timeless architectural structure.

The Landmarks Association’s Most Enhanced Awards recognize excellence in the restoration, rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of St. Louis’ architectural heritage. View all the 2023 honorees here.
