Devon Energy Center—2015 Global Awards for Excellence Winner
June 17, 2015
Location: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Developer: Devon World Headquarters LLC
Designer: Pickard Chilton
The project consolidates Devon’s Oklahoma City–based workforce into a 1.8 million-square-foot (167,000 sq m) state-of-the-art facility. Devon Energy Center creates a focal point for the company and Oklahoma City by integrating civic-scaled spaces as a vital component of its overall development. Its most prominent features include the following: 2.5 acres (1 ha) of publicly accessible parks and plazas, a six-story atrium that serves as the primary entrance and connecting hub for the complex, a five-story podium containing conference and training facilities, a promenade providing public access to restaurants and seating areas overlooking the park, and a striking 50-story office tower. The height and richly textured curtain wall of the Devon Energy Center provide a defining presence throughout the city, offering a subtly changing presence on the skyline while seamlessly integrating the historically significant 110-room Colcord Hotel into the site’s composition.
