Good news St. Louis architecture lovers – The Meyer House is saved! The 7,270 square foot residence, designed by architects Charles Eames and Robert Walsh in 1937, was commissioned by John and Alice Meyer who wanted that Eames eye throughout their entire space, not just in one chair. Eames made this home unique, with door medallions, a dramatic staircase, sundial on the front facade, and even the first few bars of Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G minor (Alice Meyer’s favorite) carved into the exterior brickwork. Only two previous owners have had the pleasure of living within its walls and to the best of our knowledge the new owners plan to restore the Eames masterpiece!
