New Haven, CT
Devon’s new headquarters serves as a focal point for the company and for Oklahoma City. Civic-scaled spaces characterize this headquarters that brings Devon’s local workforce together in a single state-of-the-art facility. A six-story glass rotunda, with balconies and a glass roof, is the entrance and connecting hub for the entire complex, and provides a dramatic space for special events. The five-story podium houses the conference and training centers and employee amenities. The indoor Galleria has dining areas overlooking the new park and landscaped plazas that are key elements in the overall site strategy.
The tower’s height and unique three-sided footprint make it visible throughout the city. The uppermost portion of the tower tapers slightly to enhance its proportions and to produce an elegant, soaring form in the skyline. At the tower’s top, each face is chamfered to create a triangular form to reflect the sky and offer a subtly changing presence on the skyline. The highly articulated mullion system integrates solar shading and night lighting, and adds richness and texture to the exterior.
