City National Bank
Designed as a signature prototype for City National Bank’s forthcoming branches, the facility features extensive glazing to convey the bank’s commitment to transparency with their customers. The prototype design is scalable: the central glass banking hall can be shortened/lengthened to allow site- and branch-specific components (offices, conference rooms, etc.) to be incorporated as required. Longitudinally, the banking hall connects the tellers on one end to a gracious lounge at the other.
Daylight harvesting, occupancy sensors, and LED lighting contribute to the facility’s high energy efficiency. Through it’s simple but bold design, the bank aims to create a sense of both comfort and professionalism – and to establish the bank’s brand for the next 100 years.
