This bank’s final design was hugely dependent on its location. Because it is situated at an intersection in a rural part of Chesterfield, both the community and the client had strong opinions on constructing a community bank with a residential feel that was appropriate for its location.
The client expressed that their vision for this building was a traditional, old Virginia farmhouse look. The front porch and Greek revival elements on the exterior suggest residential architecture, and the fireplace in the bank lobby adds a homey feel to this community bank.
It was also a priority to choose facade materials and colors that matched other local commercial structures, or that “blended in” with the surrounding developments.
This two-story branch also includes banking offices and a board room on the second floor.
