The renovation project expanded functional office space by 25 percent without expanding the building.
As Gate City Bank’s main branch, the downtown Fargo location provides banking services to a large client base in addition to serving as the bank’s corporate headquarters. The interior lobby renovation embraces both business functions while creating a bold image that is warm and inviting to reinforce the Bank’s brand image.
The project scope included updating the existing lobby and adjacent support spaces, which created an aesthetically pleasing environment that operates with optimal efficiency and flexibility.
The downtown lobby renovation reinforces the Bank’s corporate identity through the use of elegant interior finishes and spacious volumetric composition.
The project scope includes connecting to downtown with expansive windows opening to the downtown plaza and large storefront windows creating messaging opportunities.
A mezzanine over a portion of the two-story lobby space expanded office space. The interior two story lobby and glass railing connect the second floor offices with the main lobby.
Daylighting, views to the exterior and energy conservation were key project deliverables.
Bank lobby access and corporate building access were coordinated, and building security was improved.
