ANB Bank

Glenwood Springs, Colorado

This project evolved as part of a mixed-use develop­ment with two adjacent properties to create a medium-density, pedestrian-friendly environment similar to that of the original downtown core of Glenwood Springs. Commercial, retail, and resi­dential uses were combined to serve the local community and establish a more urban character in an area traditionally developed as suburban. Building masses and components such as por­ticos, loggias, and canopies were composed to create meaningful spaces between buildings and link the various uses by defining a network of pedes­trian paths.

Within the 20,940 sf building, bank functions surround a large, central fireplace/seating area that creates a warm and welcoming experience for customers. Custom woodwork was featured throughout including the teller lines, which were conveniently located to serve drive-up customers as well as walk-ins. The branch managers’ offices and service representatives’ desks were easily accessible. The second floor was leased out, and available to the bank if needed for future expansion.
