Andy’s Frozen Custard
2008 / Springfield, MO / 1,000 sq. ft.
Architecture / Interior Design / Specialty Fabrication
The store’s design is simple yet bold. It represents a new identity for the franchise that preserves the spirit of the original stores while embracing something new and progressive. A large roof unifies the custard store with site activities and the drive thru lane. Additionally, it provides a distinct and iconic presence. Deep overhangs to the south and west minimize heat gain inside the store during the day and a staggered neon array on the roof’s fascia brings the store to life at night. A cistern receives and stores water used to cool the custard machine compressors as well as all roof captured rainwater. This collected water is utilized for site irrigation.
The new store’s signature aesthetic is further enhanced by the incorporation of gradated red tiled walls on the interior. Custom site work in the form of benches, screens, and tables enliven the experience of visiting the store while outside.
