Hot Springs, Ar.
This commercial center was completed to house the Malvern Avenue branch office of Diamond State Bank, in Hot Springs, Arkansas. The 8,500 square foot complex is also home to MiMi’s Coffee Shop and makes available the upper level for commercial/office use. The owners desired a design that would enhance the surrounding neighborhood that is an eclectic mix of commercial and residential. The building is sheathed with a rock and stucco veneer that tends to a “mid-century” contemporary design. As part of the Malvern Avenue Overlay District, it is in keeping with the overall concept, and enhances the busy corner of Malvern Avenue and Carpenter Dam Road.
