Artfully tuned for efficiency and comfort, this six-story 56,000 sf office building houses operational functions for a growing bank. The ground level accommodates a mortgage center and drive-through personal banking. The two floors above coordinate regional operations. Levels four and five are reserved for future tenants, and a penthouse accommodates indoor and outdoor events. The building harnesses passive and active energy concepts currently more prevalent in Europe than in the US.
Jury Notes: The simple, well organized volume is light, airy and delicate in appearance. A wonderful contradiction to the classic “strong box” financial institutes of its early 20th century predecessors. Quiet and effective sustainable strategies, we see this building as a great precedent for the modern speculative office building.
