Reed Architecture and Interiors started in October 2009 as David Reed Architecture. The following year David hired Jill Selman and two other architects to produce the popular Booker T. Washington, Edison Preparatory, and Memorial High School arenas for Tulsa (OK) Public Schools.
Our firm changed its name to Sparks Reed Architecture and Interiors in February 2011 with the addition of partner Gary Sparks. Over the next decade our team completed landmark designs ranging from religious structures and memorials to commercial buildings and sports facilities.
Several Tulsa and Oklahoma City area high schools boast of SR-designed stadiums and arenas. Oral Roberts University and the University of Central Oklahoma tout fields and support structures bearing our designs. Multiple Tulsa area automotive dealerships attribute their efficient, sparkling showrooms to our firm's skills. Other Sparks Reed highlights range from corporate headquarters renovations and public park plans to law offices, sports bars, and a dentist office designed around "tube world."
Our team takes great pride in coming up with creative solutions to what others consider complicated problems. We see them as opportunities. Check out these examples on our website: Putnam City High School's "old gym" renovation, Putnam City West High School's football and baseball stadiums, or our new office, a 116-year-old building that started as a horse stable.
Our design team achieves these successes through what we call the Reed Architecture Way. We listen to client needs and desires, study their operations, and craft efficient, cost-effective designs that embrace both long-lasting goals and rich traditions. By delivering what a client needs in order to become the very best they can be, our firm's principals completed large and small public and private projects totaling more than $700 million, with many, many more underway.
The year 2020 brought several significant changes. In February, our leadership decided to move to Sapulpa, OK., buying and renovating a downtown building that suited our needs. Gary Sparks' April retirement led our firm to adopt its new name: Reed Architecture and Interiors.
