Sandridge Energy Commons in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma by Rogers Marvel Architects

SandRidge Energy, a rapidly growing natural gas and oil company, relocated from the outskirts of Oklahoma City into an abandoned area of the downtown core. The master plan for this new headquarters spans multiple buildings, and multiple city blocks, where architecture and landscape architecture weave to balance company needs and civic engagement.

The project creates a network of programs to support employees while forming a destination location within downtown. The distribution of programs serves as catalysts to encourage development of adjacent properties and integrate the company into the fabric of the city. Shared outdoor spaces enable employees, their families, and the broader community to enjoy spending time downtown.

The project is located between two major arteries – North Robinson, the city’s green connector, and North Broadway, lined with commercial buildings and spaces. SandRidge Commons is an ‘outdoor interior’ that provides a green link between these two major arteries.

This community-centered urban design project represents an approach not commonly sought; an approach that holds transferable lessons and great potential for other cities. Rather than becoming an icon and shaping only the skyline, rather than becoming a campus and shaping only an insular world, the task for SandRidge Commons was to weave program, buildings and landscapes, into the urban fabric and help improve the map of the city it calls home.
