Over 100 firms across the country have banded together with the common belief that a healthy environment is a civil right and that architects must advocate for livable communities. In the US, buildings account for 45% of CO2 emissions, and we believe architects must share their knowledge to create a healthier planet for all. Join Us

In The Press: 21c Oklahoma City featured in Interior Design

September 15, 2016

We are honored to be included in Interior Design magazine’s August “Art Issue” with an eight-page feature on 21c Oklahoma City. Writer Craig Kellogg interviewed Deborah and detailed the careful transformation of the Albert Kahn-designed former Model T Ford assembly plant into a boutique hotel with a restaurant, bar, gallery space, conference facilities, and tenant space. The project respects the simple geometry, expansive floor plans, and the rugged materiality of the Kahn building, but also includes bold new interventions like the monumental glass-block light wells that bring natural light deep into the core of the building. Filled with contemporary art, 21c Oklahoma City supports the revitalization of Film Row district of downtown. Read more here.
