Mercantil Commercebank made the strategic move to open retail banking locations throughout the Texas market. We were challenged to design a new prototype for that represented their growth in the State and reflected their open, yet conservative approach to retail banking. The architectural details and material selections were important to the branding of the building: The glass facade and clerestory allow for natural daylight to flood the lobby floor. The stone and steel represent a solid and sturdy company, and the wood represents growth. Locations include: The Woodlands, Tanglewood, Sugarland, and Champions.
