Elliott + Associates Receives International Design Award

Article excerpt

For the second consecutive year, the architectural firm Elliott + Associates Architects of Oklahoma City has received an award from the International Designers Society of America. This annual competition is co-sponsored by Business Week magazine.

Elliott + Associates won a Silver Award in the Environments category for its submission of a restoration/renovation of a 1920 detached garage and apartment. The project was named "North" after North Losey, a territorial photographer, took a 1920 servant's quarters and transformed it into an guesthouse for overnight visitors.

"It's an honor to have our project recognized by Business Week magazine," said Rand Elliot, president of Elliott + Associates. "It is a fitting tribute to North Losey's contribution to Oklahoma's history 100 years later."

The winning designs for both actual and potential products were chosen from 1,260 entries, encompassing 11 categories from business equipment to furniture and medical devices. Winners will be published in the June 25 issue of Business Week. All 189 winners will be honored in a gala celebration at the close of the 2001 ISDA National Conference Aug. 18 at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston. Elliott + Associates Architects received a Gold award in the environmental design category last year for Elliott's creation of a transparent "blue box" for Ackerman McQueen's executive offices and video conference.

Lakehurst Plaza

The plans are being finalized for construction of the Lakehurst Plaza strip centers on May Avenue, north of Wilshire. Developer Gary Homsey said construction should begin in July. The architect's renderings have been completed, with the design representative of architecture in the Wilshire Shops, along the west side of the new center. Homsey bought the Wilshire Shops strip center in January. Two months later he bought the property across the street. That property on the eastside of May consists of a strip center and a red steel structure. Construction of that began 17 years ago, but was never finished.
