echo energy headquarters
Located two blocks from the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, a corporate headquarters for Echo Energy brings a new life to a vacant building and bridges downtown’s hotels and sports venues to the south and commercial and retail redevelopments to the north.
“By relocating Echo Energy from the suburbs and adapting a building that was designed for radically different uses, we’re making a significant investment in—and commitment to—downtown Oklahoma City,” said Echo Energy founder Christian Kanady. “At first, we thought we would need to design a new building for Echo’s permanent home. But when we toured this building, we loved its idiosyncratic quality and recognized its untapped value. This is actually very similar to how we operate in the energy sector, so the project has a real resonance for us.”
The project weaves new tactile elements and surfaces together with the canvass of exposed building structure and infrastructure to elevate ordinary conditions and embrace the visual contradictions that result from repurposing an existing building for an entirely different use.
