North Shore Community Bank


North Shore Community Bank

The goal of this banking facility was to create a historic feel and an architectural scale that would be appropriate in the surrounding neighborhood.

The building consists of two full stories, a full basement and attic; the main level houses commercial banking services; the second floor consists of the loan department, executive offices and board rooms; the lower level incorporates the main vault, employee spaces, and auxiliary storage; and, the attic has a multitude of functions, from providing additional storage space with access to mechanical equipment and the elevator overrun.

Sited on a full city block, the building’s traditional composition and high-quality materials draw on features found in nearby historic buildings. Work also included landscape design and coordination of all site infrastructure and interiors.
