Corbin & Merz Architects recently moved to a new office on the mezzanine of the Hiland Tower in downtown Enid. We love it, although we are not completely unpacked, no pictures of our work are hung yet; heck, we haven't even hung our certificates and licenses yet. Rest assured they are right there in a box by the door if anyone needs to see them. We are waiting until the two big pieces of green stained glass are hung in the reception area and the 12-foot ladder needed to reach the custom-made oak brackets the glass will hang from is returned to the building maintenance guys at Hiland. Then we will hang stuff that might get knocked down or broken while folding and carrying out the ladder.
Pictured here is our old office that was on the fourth floor of the Broadway Tower. The green, pink, purple and aqua glass is just visible behind the pottery vase holding the yucca pods on our reception counter. They are on long-term loan from a friend who kept them under her bed until she realized the aqua color matches our conference chairs, and we might actually have a place to use them for decoration. In the old office they were hung from old iron hay loft fixtures scavenged from an old barn near Carrier, Oklahoma. This space was gutted when we first rented it in 1993 and we kept the concrete deck as our ceiling. Even the ceiling tile sales representative liked the loft style atmosphere it gave to our office.
