The Public Service Company of Oklahoma Building


The Public Service Company of Oklahoma Building was built in 1929 in the zigzag style of Art Deco, designed by Arthur Atkinson and Joseph Koberling.
A unique feature of the building is the nighttime illumination to accentuate the company’s product, electricity.


The exterior is reinforced concrete and steel window frames are covered by Bedford limestone. In 1928, the company was in the retail business, and the ground-floor windows are large, in order to accommodate merchandise displays.
The torch-shaped light fixtures feature Art Deco motifs of chevrons and geometrical patterns.


The building was listed on the National Register of Public Places in 1984.
