As a building with neither a front nor back, Oklahoma Avenue unites use and activity into its sides, roof and middle. A longitudinal cut through a six-storey volume opens up a central courtyard to increase views to downtown OKC and create a neighbourhood-engaging spine. Externally, elevations take on different characters to respond to context; the northern face reflects the vertical orientation of the Brownstones opposite, whilst the horizontal banding and ‘punched’ balconies of the south nod to the 2nd Street Lofts across the road and the Great Plains landscape further afield. A custom-mixed integral sand and cement stucco with mica chips clads the upper levels, its reflective qualities making the building glint as the sun moves or as a pedestrian wanders past. Internally, the top four levels comprise a flexible mix of 97 one and two-bedroom apartments sitting atop a two-level podium of parking and more than 1,100 square feet of retail space.
