First State Bank commissioned two new branch locations Ennis and Waxahachie.  The new design was to be a prototype for future branches.  The 4,000sf Ennis location is to be the new bank headquarters while the slightly smaller 2,600sf Waxahachie location serves as a new branch.  A staggered construction approach was ultimately chosen in an effort to get both locations open as soon as possible and lower construction costs.  The structure uses exposed Douglas Fir glu-laminated beams and decking with a wrap around clerestory to provide ample daylighting during business hours.  The minimal approach allows for exceptional transparency not often found in financial institutions.  Each location uses the prototype concept and interior design info and adapts it to its unique surroundings to take advantage of site conditions.
