Andy's Frozen Custard _ 2017
Andy’s Frozen Custard’s corporate offices were bursting at the seams and the team fell in love with the historic Cooper Plumbing warehouse in Springfield, Missouri. Andy Kuntz partnered with Hufft to transform the three-story building into their new Corporate offices, doubling their size and bringing their corporate culture front and center. The headquarters is the heart of the Andy’s network and should reflect the joy of gathering that Andy’s stores create.
The design centers on the concept of gathering, with a large central stair and stadium seating element that connects all three floors. The office also includes a professional-grade kitchen and café seating for weekly company lunches prepared and served by local chefs. The importance of connection translates to formal and informal meeting rooms designed with an element of transparency through glass wall panels, sliding partitions, or permeable slats of reclaimed walnut. The project utilized Historic Tax Credits as the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
