Designed by Rue, Berlowitz & Commander

Glenwood and Trenton, Nichols Hills

Dubbed “Tomorrow’s Home,” this residence was featured in the 8/8/48 edition of The Oklahoman with a long list of “modern mechanical marvels” and amenities, such as the use of “Pyramid Pumice” concrete, which ensured that the un-air conditioned home would be warm in winter and cool in summer (something especially important in the days just before anti-perspirants hit it big).  Here’s the ad:
