Fidelity Bank

Dallas, Texas

The firm was asked to design the corporate headquarters for one of Dallas’ largest independent bank chains. Situated in University Park across from the SMU campus, the 8,000 SF bank was designed to continue the pedestrian scale of the adjacent retail storefronts and accommodate parking and drive-through requirements. The large glass entry displays the banking lobby in its entirety, while the exposed steel gabled roof form serves as a unifying element with the drive-through canopy at the rear of the building. Limestone walls in a pattern of subtle colors and textures are used on both the interior and exterior, reinforcing the sense of permanence that a bank must embody.
