Meet Our St. Louis Studio. Casino and hospitality architecture and design are our claim to fame.

Shive-Hattery’s St. Louis studio has built a list of exciting clients who like to stretch the boundaries of gaming and entertainment, and we love helping them make their dreams come true.

Our St. Louis architecture and engineering firm is passionate about its work, which leads to lots of repeat business and helps create a comfortable, fun, and friendly place to be every day.

Top 5 Reasons We Love Our St. Louis Studio

  • We’re proud of our office! It’s fresh, streamlined, and open. (We rarely use our phones to call each other—we just walk over to see them in person.)
  • Creating a sense of family is important. We work hard, support one another, and genuinely enjoy each other’s company.
  • We’re close to the St. Louis Lambert International Airport, which makes business travel much easier.
  • We’re part of the Westport Plaza business and entertainment district. It’s an energetic and lively destination for work, play, and community, with dining and entertainment venues, festivals, and lunchtime concerts all nearby.
  • Mentorship is a priority in our studio. It’s a chance for everyone to learn, grow, and be encouraged.


Pete Maruska is Managing Director of the St. Louis studio. He is responsible for a culture aligned with Shive-Hattery’s guiding principle, values and purpose. He’s an advocate for employees, fostering mentoring, development and engagement, while supporting growth strategies for culture, client experience, project delivery and profitability.

Pete has been with KdG, a division of Shive-Hattery, for 37 years. He has grown a hospitality and gaming practice from one client over thirty years ago, to the thriving business that it is today.
