Cornerstone Bank Watford City, ND

Located on a main thoroughfare, just North of Teddy Roosevelt National Park in the mountainous badlands, the facility conveys a welcoming message to customers or those simply passing by.

The Owner team desired a facility that paid homage to its Western North Dakota vernacular. Several underlying aspects noted from preliminary design included: bold, natural, textural, mountain-style architecture with a more streamlined commercial feel, referencing the badlands landscape color/texture on the building & a warm, inviting vibe for customers.

Spatial efficiency was imperative for customers and employees alike. Therefore, simple circulation to peripheral work spaces was desired with high transparency between the two.

  • Strategic glazing locations allow for natural daylight infiltration throughout multiple spaces. Simultaneously creating a bright work environment for employees and an airy environment for customers.
  • The primary structural spine of the building is a heavy timber vault which extends from the buildings main entrance facing West to the board room/roof patio which sits atop the drive-through service area on the East. A hybrid structural system of steel and heavy timber yields unique details around every corner.
  • Layered in are an abundance of glass, warm tones, calculating lighting highlights and the environment itself, convey an inviting essence.
