Franz Arzt House, Revisited

I’m pleased to report there’s been steady progress on the wonderful Dr. Franz Arzt House on Twelfth Street at Lami. See my original article at St. Louis Magazine showing pictures of the interior by Jason Gray right before renovation began.

The solarium, which faces south, has been returned to its original appearance (its pocket doors were still in the house, which allowed light into the masonry portion of the home), and beautiful and exotic plants sat behind the large windows.

The owners have built a small addition to the north, approved by the Cultural Resources Office and the Preservation Board, which can be seen to the left in the photo below.


    • It sure is! Make sure to look in particular at the St. Louis Magazine photos by Jason Gray of the artificial grotto Dr. Arzt constructed. It is one of a kind in St. Louis, as far as I know.

  1. The eponymous Dr. Arzt! We Southsiders love our rockpiles – maybe it’s a German thing?
