OKasian House is a two-story home situated in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA. Fitzsimmons Architects did a great job creating their first architectural project, a space that has multiple functions: a home, an architectural office and a design workshop, all under the same roof.
The three buildings that were originally occupying the plot were demolished to make room for the owners’ ideas and the architects’ plans. The building was placed at the South end of the plot, to provide discreet shop and alley garage access. The guests are welcomed through a beautiful bamboo lined courtyard, located on the North side of the property. A wall made of large sliding glass panels blurs the inside-outside boundary, creating an open space fitted for the owners’ needs.
The beautiful surroundings can be admired from the kitchen, the living room or the balcony office, due to a 16-foot-high corner of glass. Although the three outdoor spaces allow interaction with the neighborhood, there is still one place for privacy and relaxation. The sheltered roof-top deck is the perfect retreat, where one can admire the beautiful sunset or simply have a moment of silence.
