A classic example of art deco industrial architecture, 300 East Brady was slated for demolition. Instead the abandoned warehouse, originally constructed for Holloway Wire Rope in 1937, was transformed into office space and a second-story loft apartment that brings life to Tulsa’s growing Brady Arts District.
Time had taken its toll on the old downtown structure. But Selser Schaefer Architects gave 300 East Brady a second life, adding a two-story addition that contrasts with the existing warehouse. The addition incorporates materials and details from the architecture of the Brady Arts District, such as industrial steel windows and galvanized metal panels. The standing seam metal roof includes ridge skylights that bathe the second-story loft apartment with light.
