Tandy Medical Arts Building

This small but interesting doctors’ office building sits just north of Natural Bridge on Kingshighway.

Not only is it an interesting building, it has an interesting history. Read this entry from Discovering African American St. Louis.

The details are what I enjoy about this building, from the brick-created symbol for medicine…

…to the flower bed that sits on one side of the doorway.

The small details like the railing also add a sophisticated touch to the design. The lobby is fantastic as well, containing apparently all of the original features as well as furniture.

  1. gorgeous! it's a shame today's paranoid building codes in the US won't allow for a stair to be built like that anymore (4" sphere not allowed to pass through at bottom of railing. apparently represents a baby's head. interesting…)
