The corporate headquarters for SandRidge Energy highlights the challenges of American urbanism in the 21st century. The 3.5-acre site is comprised of ‘recycled’ historically significant buildings, a corporate plaza, and a public park embedded in a resurgent downtown. To create a unified, welcoming campus, we knitted together the elements with sculpted landforms that evoke the varying topography of Oklahoma, define spaces, and frame views. The design also addressed the challenge of Oklahoma City’s strong, persistent winds, enabling pedestrian and plaza areas to be enjoyed for much of the year.
