Plaza North Bank
Texas Design Interests, LLC accommodated an extremely compressed schedule in the design of this 6,000 square foot bank building. The design itself presented challenges to create a two story open structure over half the footprint, utilizing an in-wall steel frame, while providing a clerestory for 70% of the building perimeter. The building’s lateral system and perimeter columns are all located within the wall cavity to provide maximum floor space and interior design flexibility.
