A stunning 1938 home from St. Louis, Missouri

There is practically no limit to the designs that can be built with reinforced concrete, for not only is it a material of superior strength, but its application is so flexible it will take any form. Massive surfaces, curving walls, long unsupported spans, canopies and even intricate little ornaments such as are blended together in this St. Louis house are all easily formed of reinforced concrete. Here a graceful staircase was built of concrete, and the firesafe, concrete subfloor was finished with composition blocks.
