Overview

The art vestibule design that our team is designed, activates the entry of the new Tennis Center Club House by filling the vestibule interior with cascades of color and shadow casts during the day and by illuminating the exterior like a kaleidoscopic beacon during the night. The art vestibule was designed to meet all structural codes and engineering requirements. Art glazing designs were created by Martin Donlin and metal designs were created by Brett McDanel in this collaborative project. This project was made possible by the Oklahoma City Percent for Art Program.

Goals

The goal was to create a welcoming sense of place that would brand the activities of the new club house addition to the largest indoor/outdoor tennis center in the central United States.

Process

The creative team competed for this Public Project by collaborating on a design that could be fabricated in and out of house. The powder coated metal screens that superimpose the glass were designed and hand fabricated by Brett McDanel Studio. Martin Donlin designed the glass which was fabricated as low-e IGU using dip-tech fabrication. The installation of glazing and aluminum components was managed through The Glass Specialists via Manko Windows. Installation of superimposed metals were handled in house to complete the project. The art marker was designed by the Creative Team and fabricated by Direct Embed.

Additional Information

All of the powder coat finishes for this project were custom blended from Tiger Drylac Series 38 pigments to be durable for 25 years of service to the facility.
