Bower Leet Design’s 1970s era home remodel took home the 2023 STL Design Award for Modern Interior Design and Modern Kitchen

This 1970s home had suffered through several renovations that ignored its style and bones. With an eye toward accentuating the basic structure, Bower Leet designers added more glass and removed walls for better flow and light. The new fireplace became a focal point on the two-story wall—accentuating the height of the space—and casework wrapped together a balcony, television, and display shelving to frame the fireplace.

In the kitchen, the appliances are organized in a clean line, allowing the designer to accommodate the homeowners’ request for a view from the kitchen island to the backyard. Opening the existing small kitchen to the living room and installing floor-to-ceiling windows into the alcove opposite the island provided more space and light. The wall behind the cooktop and hood, clad in a three-dimensional tile, is the focal point; it coordinates well with the rich wood cabinetry, white counters, and stainless steel appliances and faucet.
