George A. Purefoy Municipal Center Frisco, Texas
The centerpiece of the Frisco Square development, the facility accommodates the needs of the city's rapidly growing population and houses spaces for both the city hall and the public library.
City of Frisco
Alluding to the tradition of Texas courthouses overlooking a public square, the building face in Texas red granite and Texas limestone exudes permanence and formality reflective of its civic importance. Dramatic vaulted spaces, a multi-storied atrium, and light-filled airy interiors create a memorable space for visitors.
Richly patterned custom fabrics and flooring used throughout the complex reflect Frisco’s history and traditions, further celebrating the city’s identity and rooting the building in its locale. Marked by a constant buzz of activity, the lively and dynamic interior spaces encourage residents to utilize the center as a place for gathering.
