Join us for TFA’s newest program, Design Insider! Design Insider directly connects those interested in architecture and design with architecture firms, property developers, and interior designers to get the inside scoop on past, present, and future projects. Guests will have the opportunity to hear directly from architects, developers, and designers about their work and to ask questions.

Design Insider tickets are limited to allow for an intimate experience. Tickets include a complimentary glass of red or white wine.

March’s Design Insider will take place at THE BRUT HOTEL developed by Sharp Development.

ABOUT THE BRUT HOTEL: An 82-unit former apartment building located at 1840 South Boulder Avenue in Downtown Tulsa has been transformed into The Brut Hotel. The piece of Brutalist architecture has been recently converted and will welcome guests in the summer of 2023. The $10 million project just south of downtown is redefining luxury accommodations in the city.

The building’s style first made its appearance in the UK around the 1950s. The Brutalist architecture has not only given this Tulsa hotel its name, but has also given the development team room to piggyback with the serving of little Brut champagne bottles. A 9th floor rooftop bar & restaurant is planned with more than enough room for hotel events. The 360 rooftop will give hotel guests both elegant views of Downtown Tulsa and sweeping views of the Arkansas River.

Developers emphasize the local focus when it comes to events. Fashion shows, art installations, and yoga retreats are all planned. Guests will also be afforded bicycle, skateboard, and roller blade rental options. This highlights the hotel’s location and close presence to the downtown and Riverside areas.
