ABOUT Our goal at Advantes Development is bringing modern charm into older homes. We combine a love for architecture and design with over ten years of development experience. Our renovation process preserves the classic aspect of the home while giving owners all the aspects of modern design. The end result is a beautiful classic built for the 21st century. Advantes Development works with homeowners to transform classic homes in some of the most historic neighborhoods around the greater St. Louis area. Owner Brian Minges and lead designer Gretchen Minges work with homeowners to renovate floor layouts, update décor and finishes, and produce custom high-end remodels. Our passion for architecture is matched only by our love for beautiful design. We work to preserve the classic elements of older homes by integrating them into modern remodels. Materials are selected to specifically enhance the merging of both old and new designs. The Advantes design process begins with a full walk-through of the home with our design team. We create the custom home of your dreams with your budget and everyday needs in mind. The construction timeline is closely monitored by our management team to ensure an ideal finished product. Our commitment to you is the home of your dreams with a vintage modern appeal.
