Project Description

Design Challenge:

Provide a branch bank for Community First Bank in a new market area that would capitalize on the growing local economy and portray an up-to-date image of the bank’s signature plaster and tower look.

Design Solution:

We took advantage of the busy corner lot by using generous amounts of glass that view into the bank lobby.  “Opening-up” the bank in this way provides to both customers and employees a safe and welcoming banking experience.  We provided a literal “twist” to the bank’s signature tower unit by placing it diagonal to the main entry giving it prominence from all angles of approach. Particular attention was paid to the interior materials and surfaces in order to provide a forward leaning look while remaining appropriate for the small-town community served.
