Frost Tower San Antonio Opens

As Interior Architect, Marmon Mok designed the interior finish out for 15 floors of the new Frost Tower to be occupied by Frost Bank. All floors contain curated art collections and custom furniture made from live oaks that were harvested from the property. A contemporary design aesthetic is applied throughout each floor, with a focus on integration of modern technology and full utilization of the abundant natural light.

Marmon Mok's New Home

Today, more so than ever, the design and layout of a workplace play a significant role in the way a business operates. Technology and mobility require flexible, multipurpose spaces centered on employee health and happiness. With this notion at the forefront, Marmon Mok is moving to the Oak Park Building beginning June 10th.

“It’s been great to practice what we preach to our clients and help create an effective space for our team,” says Partner and Architect, Mary Bartlett. “We conducted a visioning session with our team and, from everyone’s feedback, created a space that provides a variety of work environments that allows for group collaboration as well as individual focused work.”

Having designed large, progressive office environments for projects like the Frost Tower Headquarters, One Frost Westover Hills Campus, Texas Organ Sharing Alliance, Bexar County Public Works Building, and TxDOT Consolidation Campus, Marmon Mok’s new space is designed with the same energy and workplace philosophy to better accommodate our expanding and collaborative practice. Abundant natural light and views, varied multifunctional spaces, a collaborative break/work zone, and contemporary work stations for all employees are key elements of our workplace.

Alamodome Renovations Win SABJ Community Impact Award

The Final Four Renovations for the Alamodome garnered a Community Impact Award in the San Antonio Business Journal’s Building San Antonio Awards. For the 2018 Final Four, the design/build team of Turner + Marmon Mok + Populous widened the plaza level concourse on the east and west sides, completed a 50,000 SF concession expansion and renovation, added a 24,000 SF press facility addition, updated locker rooms, and enhanced the technology and scoreboard systems of the facility.

Rec/Sports Practice Featured in SA Business Journal

“San Antonio-based Marmon Mok Architects, which was involved in the initial design of the 65,000-seat Alamodome and teamed with Populous on its recent $60 million makeover before the 2018 NCAA men’s Final Four, is looking to parlay that work into an expanded sports practice.

Principle Greg Houston, who heads the firm’s sports practice, said the company is involved in multiple projects, including a roughly $15 million transformation of the Northeast Independent School District’s aging Walker Natatorium. That project led to a similar opportunity with the Southwest Independent School District, which has tapped the firm to design its new aquatics complex.”
