Today my friends and I toured the most beautiful home, Tulsa’s Osher House. Built in 1963, the Osher House was designed by Bruce Goff’s student Blaine Imel and is also known as “The Flintstones House.” The unique circular design shines with aqua glass.
Yesterday my friends and I had a lovely day of touring homes and we got both a lot of sun and a lot of steps ☀️
First we toured the neighborhood where my friends live, Tulsa’s historic Lortondale mid-century modern homes. Here are some highlights:
Also, one house in the neighborhood had a beautiful wildflower yard! 😍
Next, we toured the Adah Robinson home, designed by artist and teacher Adah Robinson with the aid of her student Bruce Goff as well as assistance from Joseph Koberling. The Art Deco house features leaded glass windows, hollow tile, stucco, and terrazzo floors. The unique layout welcomes visitors with a stunning two-story living area with a huge open space, tall windows, and a beautiful light fixture. Adah Robinson was also a concept designer for Tulsa’s famous building, the Boston Avenue Methodist Church.
Here are a few photos from my New Year/winter break in beautiful Phoenix. Pinkish and cornflower blue skies, the freshness of the dry air, the clean lines of the city, the mountains, time with loved ones: the start of the New Year. ❤️
Here is the second stop on the Tulsa Goes Mod! tour this last weekend, the Page Belcher Federal Building, which was built in 1967.
It stands between the formidable Central library and the unmistakeable BOK center, and while many Tulsans think it’s a plain site to see between the two, it’s still a historical icon, and I must say that I for one prefer the classic, clean design of the structure to its new BOK neighbor.
