H2J House | Architect: Clark Todd Gollotte
Photography by: Yellow Dog Design Works

A playful collaboration of metal, weathering steel, wood, concrete, CMU and stone, the H2J House was deliberately designed for three generations.

Past | Western Wing: A couple in their late 70s. The choice to have this couple on the west side of the home reflects the symbolism that a setting sun calls to mind.

Present | Eastern Wing: A couple in their mid 50s. This couple rises with the sun in the east each morning, representing the vitality and spirit of middle age.

Future | Block House: Children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and their families.

Guests can enjoy a fully independent living space that gives them privacy, relaxation and peace.

Prairie Pavilions | Architect: Freese Architecture

The owners of this home are Seattle transplants who lived their early lives surrounded by west coast architecture heavily imbued with Asian and Prairie School influences. This successful executive couple, now living in Joplin, Missouri with customers from around the globe, desired a home that would facilitate large group entertaining with a resort-like ambiance, yet have an intimate, personal feel for comfortable, casual living – all woven together in the fabric of a modern home with familiar design undertones that settles naturally into the Midwest landscape.

MM31 | Architect: Freese Architecture |
Photography by: Nathan Harmon

MM31 is the first of a series of Midwest Modern homes designed for the open market in some of the more established areas in Tulsa. Set in a neighborhood of modestly-sized ranch style houses, this 3,750 square foot home takes cues of exterior materials and proportions from its neighbors.

The building form is composed of a muscular stone base with lighter stucco projections and dark siding infill. A reductive process of carving into the stone mass was employed to create openings for doors and windows. The stone is articulated with recessed horizontal courses at the floor and window header lines, creating datum lines that communicate key proportions of the living space within.
