Classen16

Oklahoma, USA. 2019

  • Project Details
  • Completion: 2019
  • Clients: Pivot Project

Classen16 is a new-build mixed-use apartment and commercial building that sits on the cusp of a heavily-used arterial road and the vibrant, walkable Plaza District of Oklahoma City. Acting as a mediator between these contrasting contexts, the building adopts a domestic scale that steps in discrete blocks and rises to address the business corridor of Classen Boulevard. The form hugs the street edge, concealing surface parking and residents’ amenity areas from the adjacent roads. The streetscape is enlivened with a generous planted buffer and raised stoops to all the ground floor homes. The building is clad with a shimmering, scale-like aluminium shake that reacts to the changing quality of light throughout the day.

Classen 16 tops out

Classen 16 in Oklahoma has reached its highest point this week. The timber frame mixed use building in the Plaza district of Oklahoma City will provide 48 residential units of one and two bedrooms, with a 3,800 square foot retail space. Cladding has also begun on site with almost half the building covered in its distinctive aluminium shake, a playful nod to the locally-renowned seafood restaurant that once occupied the site, and to the utilitarian farm buildings common throughout the region.
