Frost Bank challenged the designers to create a distinctly new environment that would honor its employees, attract the best of a new generation, and represent their strong identity. A uniquely Texas financial institution; the tag-line “We’re From Here” inspired the designers to follow a Texas Modern aesthetic. Located in the scenic Hill Country setting in San Antonio, One Frost is a contrast of local materials, limestone and wood, balanced against a contemporary glass and metal structure. The courtyards of the building complement the formal front entry and a casual backyard; a comfortable place to relax on the back patio amid the native oaks and falling water.
Honoring the land and environment, One Frost integrates resource preservation with water conservation – gray water irrigation and condensate collection; integrated LED lighting, daylight harvesting and shade control; and wellness trails around the property.
Emphasizing community, the first floor celebrates Frost employees. “Main Street” leads you into building with a mix of amenities to make life easier; Town Center affords a central gathering place to collaborate, generate ideas, and build community.
Spacious open floor plates of the upper floors provide work space that is open and flexible to meet the needs of the dynamic and ever changing work place. The outer perimeter of each floor is dedicated to circulation to ensure the full height glass windows provide daylight and views to all. Nodes of “Huddles”, “Havens” and “Living Rooms” create opportunities for collaboration, by chance encounter or structured meeting, within a distinctly Texas casual setting.
