McDermott Residence

project: McDermott Residence.

location: Crag Knob Road, Kirkwood, Missouri.

architect: Harris Armstrong.

date: 1954.

contractor: Kuni-Jacobsmeyer, Clayton, Missouri.

 

Another house designed by Armstrong located nearby is the Andrews Residence. The overall concept and form of the two houses are quite similar, however the McDermott Residence is a more economical, compact design using standard building materials and techniques.
