REES Wins Three Design Awards

The Oklahoma Interior Design Coalition recognized three REES projects at the 2021 OIDC Awards. REES won best design for Civic / Non-profit, Healthcare (Large) and Corporate Commercial. The OIDC awards recognize projects that impact the health, safety and welfare of their end users.  Each project is also evaluated on their functional, contextual, social, sustainable and cultural characteristics.

ReMerge | Civic / Non-profit

ReMerge is a non-profit organization and comprehensive diversion program for women. It offers tools to pregnant women and mothers facing incarceration to transform their lives. Through a series of educational classes and counseling, women with children facing non-violent crimes are given resources to assist with mental health and substance abuse. Budgeting, health and wellness and parenting classes are also offered.

The design for ReMerge’s new Journey Home needed to support ReMerge participants. With women coming from backgrounds with unhealthy relationships and poverty, it was crucial to create a sense of community and togetherness in their new “home”.

HoganTaylor | Corporate Commercial

HoganTaylor’s new open concept layout along with their new location in the heart of Downtown, Oklahoma City, instills a sense of community among the staff. Designers incorporated art from local artists throughout the space as a reminder of the community values of the company. The REES-designed space balances residential and commercial elements to create a relaxed environment.
