Isadore Shank House

Copyright St. Louis Patina -2560

I had the opportunity to see Isadore Shank’s house a weekend or two ago, nestled on a quiet street in the county. It is an exceptional house, and a testament to Modernist home design on a humane level.

The house overlooks woods that were carefully laid out to preserve the idyllic setting of the house. It is currently occupied by Shank’s family, who are ardent supporters of Modernism in St. Louis and its great enemy, the Pseudo-Historicist McMansion.
