Ohio Savings Bank Shoregate Branch

Corporate

Ohio Savings Bank Shoregate Branch

Willowick, Ohio

Ohio Savings Bank chose to relocate its’ retail branch within a shopping center strip mall, to a freestanding outparcel within the renovated Shoregate Town Center. We began the process by teaming with Ohio Savings Management to review their goals regarding program and square footage requirements, site planning and orientation strategies and design vocabulary. Through sketches and preliminary models the design process began. Orientation and positioning of the building in relationship to the street and the shopping center were critical. The decision was to design a building that had “four sides” vs. a “front” and “back”.

The goal was to design an innovative and creative retail branch bank, incorporating many of the branch standards in addition to a focus on green building design initiatives. Equally important, was selecting materials and a design direction that complimented and was distinct from the shopping center. The design incorporates many of the design elements of the shopping center while providing a classic modern feel and a distinct branding for Ohio Savings Bank.
