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.

New photographs of 21c Oklahoma City

August 16, 2016

The latest edition of the 21c Museum Hotels recently opened in Oklahoma City. Located in a 1916 Albert Kahn-designed former Model T Ford Assembly Plant, the hotel, restaurant, bar, and galleries, have a simple, modern design that reinforces the spatial and structural clarity of the Kahn building. We cut a series of monumental glass block light wells into the floorplates to bring natural illumination deep into the center of the building. As with all the 21c projects, contemporary art is integrated throughout the public areas, hallways, and guest rooms. The project brings new vitality to the western edge of Downtown Oklahoma City, and we are proud to be a part of it. Go to see some new photographs.
