This is a 6,964 sf retail branch bank.  The client requested a residential feel on the outside with a more contemporary western feel on the inside.  The building features an Idenity Tower, with wrap around porch which helps to reduce its scale.  All gables are designed for residential scale and put focus on the interior.  The hip roofs and horizontal elements offset the more vertical gable forms.  Custom columns with integrated lighting and banners along with large windows create a welcoming feel.  The interior is designed to engage the customer and direct flow and line of sight to product

A sculptural signage tower connects the community through a 24 hour glass technology "Bridge" to the greeter zone, directory, community wall and self help kiosk areas.  Beyond "Main Street" are the offices, MSR's and teller back wall.  These are boutique-like suggesting an architectural metaphor to an outdoor marketplace.  Marquis signage and overhead canopies reinforce this feeling. 17,000 sq ft

ASID Quarterly Interior Design Billings Index Slips Slightly

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 6, 2013) | The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Interior Design Billings Index reported its first decline in the quarter ending December 31, 2012 following 14 consecutive months of growth. The December 2012 Billings index of 47.2 indicates a contraction in sales from the November level of 58.9. However, an Inquiry index of 54.4 in December 2012 implies that a greater percentage of ASID respondents expect to experience growth in the coming months.
