Designed to delight and intrigue travelers and local patrons, Bradford House is a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel and hospitality destination nestled in the heart of Oklahoma City.
Originally built as a private, multi-family residence in 1912, the new owners approached Gardner to envision a space that could bring European Hospitality to Oklahoma City through a unique yet rooted design. The final concept involved a careful and complete transformation of the original building known as the “The Historic Home,” design and construction of “The Modern Guesthouse,” and a private hidden courtyard.
The property includes a full-service restaurant and bar, 12 guest rooms in the existing building, and an additional 26 guest rooms in new construction. The new building wraps the old house while respecting its presence with a lower height and much simpler detailing. Custom wood furnishings and Chippendale railings designed and fabricated by Gardner’s Shop are woven throughout the property on the wraparound porch and interior grand staircase.
The project’s ultimate success merged the owners’ eclectic, traditional aesthetic with the Studio’s modern design sensibilities.
