Located in the historic Automobile Alley District of Oklahoma City the design seeks to transform an existing 1930 historic masonry and steel building into a modern office space. The character of the 12,000 sq. ft. two story building, originally built for Sharp Auto Supply Co, had been diminished by thick layers of paint, historically inaccurate additions, and years of misguided design efforts.
The building covers the entire lot. There is 10 feet of additional space on the north end that allowed us to construct a fire stair, mechanical enclosure, and covered outdoor deck. This exterior construction made it possible to leave the interior intact. The open framing is consistent with the exposed studs on the interior that dramatizes the construction behind the walls., Image Courtesy © Scott McDonald, Hedrich Blessing

It also acts as a meeting ground for the residents and offers people a space for outdoor events. The square is paved with a with two-tone cobblestone zebra pattern from white Lasa marble and black basalt. Through an undulating elevation of the paving in the northeast area of the square a planter with seat function with different heights and different inclinations was created.

After purchasing a discarded construction trailer for just €15, owners Kris and Griet together with Ghent-based architect practice Karel Verstraeten have transformed it into an inhabitable space.
Wanting to create a small dwelling that could be used for either studying and resting or partying, the unit was pulled to the back of the garden by a local farmer. Its existing structure was completely stripped back and replaced with new materials.
