AIA Architecture Tour Part 2: Kliewer Home

by Malena Lott

Restoration of an icon? I’ll say. Since the former award-winning George Seminoff home built in 1970 sits off the beaten path in North Oklahoma City, you wouldn’t know the mid-century dream home exists at all. Thank goodness for AIA tours and new home owners willing to refurbish gems like this one. The glass and brick two-story home was the private dwelling of architect Seminoff until a family connection enabled Brent Kliewer to view the home several times before deciding to purchase and renovate it.

And renovate he did, over three years, with the help of Fitzimmons Architects and designer Larry Pickering. Some of the new additions includes finished like new bamboo flooring, new teak fill in and stone countertops.

Here are a few of our favorite things from the home. Stellar all the way around, from the art to the small touches to, of course, that amazing natural view and light, light, light.
