TFA DISTINCTIVE DWELLINGS: Pershing Studios in Owen Park

 $15 | $11.25 | Event starts at 1:00 PM | Sunday, April 30th, 2023

Tulsa boasts a wide variety of residential architecture from the late 1800s through today. From midcentury modern, craftsman bungalows and colonial revival to contemporary mansions, there is an abundance of interesting homes throughout the city. The goal of TFA’s newest residential-focused program, Distinctive Dwellings, is to give those who love architecture an opportunity to see behind the doors of Tulsa’s most distinctive residences through self-guided exploration.

On this tour, you’ll explore multiple living units in Pershing Studios as well as common spaces for residents. These work/live studio apartments were built in 1918 first as an elementary school and were renovated into apartments in 2015. Now, the property serves as non-traditional community housing with a garden, basketball court, art studio, and lots of character.
