Project Description

This modern project in the Midtown neighborhood of Oklahoma City has served as home, architectural office, and design workshop. The 7th st. site, once home to three buildings demolished in the 1980's satisfied the owners' enthusiasm for downtown living and the architect's belief in urban in-fill. The form is influenced by numerals important to the owners and expressive of their unique taste. It is enveloped in metal with large expanses of brick and glass providing approximately 2400 s.f. of living space filled with art and furniture by the Owner/Architect and other local artists.

One objective was to maximize the view of Oklahoma City's growing downtown skyline. Placing the building at the South end of the lot accomplishes this and accommodates discreet alley garage and shop access on the South lower level. This placement also allows a future building to the north.
