From the architect. The President of a 90+ year old regional bank approached the Architect to assist in the modernization of an existing branch office.

The new layout shifts the focus away from the centrally located vault and instead focuses on the experience of the customer and the interpersonal relationships formed between the bank and its community, an important trait with increased competition coming from publicly traded national or international conglomerates. Integrated walnut storage boxes within a new slim 3/8" profile storefront system reduce clutter while defining interior office spaces. Walnut was also utilized as a wall and ceiling material at the entry lobby, clearly defining this public zone while complementing the original interior brick surfaces retained within the office spaces.

The owner's request for added street presence along the busy highway was handled through the addition of a satin etched glass screen within a lightweight steel frame concealing LED uplighting. The subtle added height of these translucent panels gives the building new life while not sacrificing the well-conceived elegance and proportion of the existing modern forms.

Overall, a very outstanding rehab. Too bad about that existing brick color though.

Ah....Sanders and Pace have done it again!
Banking at its best......What we have here is a perfect example of restraint and mastery of detailing. I suspect we'll be seeing much more from this office in the years to come.

I love the treatment of the facade, particularly the translucent backlit glass which is both eye-catching and subtle.
