REES is proud to accept four awards from the Oklahoma Interior Design Coalition’s Oklahoma Interior Design Awards! The awards recognize a project’s ability to impact the health, safety, and welfare of the users and the project’s functional, contextual, social, sustainable, and aesthetic characteristics. Congratulations to the project teams on your recognitions!
Best in Higher Education – The University of Oklahoma’s Zarrow Family Faculty and Graduate Center
The previously staff-only spaces in the University of Oklahoma Bizzell Memorial Library’s Lower Level 2 were transformed into a faculty and graduate student oasis. The faculty and graduate–only areas are defined by a high–performance glass wall system that provides better acoustics, integrates technology and gives an open feeling to the lower level.
Best in Hospitality – WinStar Convention Center
REES addressed the client’s need for a conference center at the heart of one of the world’s largest casino and resort destinations. The project includes a state-of-the-art 15,000-square-foot grand ballroom, a 7,000-square-foot junior ballroom, 3 boardrooms and a pre-function space.
Honorable Mention in Large Healthcare – McBride Orthopedic Hospital’s Ambulatory Surgery Center
McBride wanted to relocate their ambulatory surgery center closer to campus of their recently completed hospital, clinic and medical office building, which were also designed by REES. The 36,746-square-foot building brings six operating rooms, a 24-bed prep and recovery unit as well as a 12-bed PACU unit to the campus.
Honorable Mention in Small Healthcare – Stillwater Medical Center’s Cancer Center
Stillwater Medical Center needed to update their existing cancer center and required additional space in order to expand their service offering. REES designed an 8,000-square-foot expansion to hold new offices and exam rooms, allowing two additional physicians to practice in the center.
