Santa Fe South Charter School | Architect: Beck Design 

Santa Fe South had been in a temporary building that was in dire need of repair for years. They were looking for a place to call home that would also foster the needs of their diverse student body. An old mall in Oklahoma City was repurposed to house this colorful Charter High School providing space and flexibility for the growing classes. The heart and soul of this new space is the student commons at the main entry, which creates a sense of arrival and community belonging. This central collaboration space is a place in which all of the grades and staff can come together as one integrated group.

Originally constructed in the 1940’s, this downtown building complex was transformed into a beautiful and charming call center for the cosmetic company, SeneGence International. The extensive rehabilitation combines three buildings in a main street downtown setting, and the resulting transformation blends the downtown charm and scale with the contemporary face of the company.

The adaptive reuse of this 95 year old building shows our commitment to honoring the building and bringing it back to life…we need the historical connection. The Jones Assembly establishes strong roots for the future of the building.

For years, home improvement has been dominated by orange and blue. Now there’s a new color in town – green. TreeHouse is a home upgrade company with a mission to make our homes beautiful, healthy, smart and sustainable. Their services include professional design assistance, curated products and installation that places a premium on quality, health and sustainability.

This new store, an adaptive re-use of an existing retail space, borrows from a Texas residential rather than a commercial aesthetic, and is itself a model of sustainability.
