The Firm Banner Photo

Freese Architecture, founded by Brian L. Freese in 1994, is an award-winning firm dedicated to designing modern buildings and homes fitting to Oklahoma and the American Midwest. The firm has projects spanning the state, as well as in Texas, Missouri, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

Freese Architecture’s design principles are rooted in what Principal Brian L. Freese, AIA, calls Midwest Modern – using elemental, natural materials in a modern vocabulary that reflect and respond to the local climate, geography, history, and culture. The firm’s architecture, meticulously detailed, has a visceral connection to nature with expansive views to their surroundings, interiors flooded with light, and landscapes that seem to embrace the structures.

The firm has been widely featured in publications including Architectural Digest, Western Art & Architecture, Dwell, Design Bureau, Oklahoma Magazine, and World of Homes; and books including HIGH ON LIVING – Dream Houses, Ralf Daab, booq publishing, Barcelona, Spain; HIGH ON LIVING – Residential Architecture and Interior Design, Volume I, Ralf Daab, booq publishing, Barcelona, Spain; ARCHITECTURE – Innovative Spaces Shaping Global Design, Alarm Press, Chicago, Illinois; On the Porch, James Crisp and Sandra L. Mahoney, Taunton Press, Newton, Connecticut; and Tomorrow’s Historic Homes of Tulsa, John Brooks Walton, JBW Publications, Tulsa, Oklahoma.
