TAP ARCHITECTURE © 2017
Located on the corner of 4th and Broadway in downtown Oklahoma City, TAP experiences the heart of the city on a daily basis. With the continued development of downtown and the progressive city culture, TAP exists in an exciting environment of growth, which gives us constant encouragement to better the city and state that we live in.
Our open design studio facilitates interaction among designers, team members, as well as clients and visitors.
TAP is rigorous and deliberate as we move through a time-proven process to identify your needs and resources and to explore alternatives for optimum solutions. No two clients or projects are alike. Our processes adapt to the unique requirements of each situation.

TAP ARCHITECTURE’s vision is simple. We seek to make a difference by doing work that matters. TAP deliberately and vigorously seeks involvement with projects that are important to community - size or public profile notwithstanding. TAP avoids niche typologies in favor of projects with promise of design opportunity and creative contribution.
TAP recognizes design as a human activity involving input from a large pool of ideas, cultures, and constructs: ours…our clients…and those yet unknown who will experience life in our built environment. TAP (The Architectural Partnership) is propelled by partnership, not patriarchy. The ethics of business and design are the yardstick by which we measure all we do.
TAP believes in the pursuit of technical virtuosity through the knowledge of methods and materials that make up our artful craft. The process of learning and teaching, research and experience inform the unique affinity we find between the worlds of innovation and tradition.
