Page Woodson - Building A

Part of phase one of a development of multi-family housing offerings near downtown Oklahoma City and the OU Health Science Center, the adaptive reuse of Page Woodson School into affordable apartments marks a vibrant cultural rebirth in Oklahoma City.

 

The project includes redevelopment of a century-old high school into 65 multi-family units along with the renovation of the 700-seat auditorium to be used for civic and neighborhood functions. The adaptation capitalizes on the building’s art deco flourishes, limestone accents and school themes, with most original blackboards preserved in place.
