The house, designed in the late 1950s with inspiration drawn from Bruce Goff and a resurgence of Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired architectural tendencies, had become worn and overwhelmed by years of misunderstandings and ill-conceived modifications until Brent Swift stepped in an bought the property to revitalize it with the help of Butzer Gardner Architects.
Through a series of incisions, removals, relocations and modest additions of opaque or perforated space, the parti of the L-shaped home and its nestled relationship to the outdoors and grand pecan in the front yard has been reestablished and invigorated. New internal-external spatial conditions are established or strengthened. A restored swimming pool and stone sunning deck toward the rear complement the landscape apron leading to a newly set entry door location.
This property has been featured on the Oklahoma City architecture tour in 2012.
