Oklahoma State University ~ Donald W. Reynolds School of Architecture

Stillwater, Oklahoma

Project Description

This project created 30,000 sq. ft. of new space and renovated 47,000 sq. ft. of the existing 91 year old facility.

A unique design feature is that all of the construction systems are open and exposed to include the superstructure, exposed mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems. Minimal flooring and ceilings were used in order to expose the existing building. Other features include:

  • Visualization/computer lab

  • Gallery space and an expanded architectural library

  • Design studio space

  • A model shop

  • Expanded administrative areas

Sustainable Features
While not a LEED certified project, this project applied many LEED principals which include the use of environmentally friendly materials, daylight harvesting, natural shading, skylights, thermal glass walls and high efficiency systems to include fritted glass, passive shading and diffused lighting through custom designed glaze systems.
