Bank Midwest commissioned Bell/Knott to give 16 of their Kansas City branch banks a contemporary remodel. Playing off their newly revamped marketing scheme, the designers at Bell/Knott introduced a palette of bright, clean hues.
White walls replaced beiges and browns, while yellow accent walls added a splash of color. Bank Midwest blue was introduced through marketing images hung on the walls that replaced traditional paintings. Bell/Knott was also tasked with selecting contemporary carpets and tiles that could withstand the heavy foot traffic branch banks receive.
Bell/Knott also designed a new line of contemporary bank furnishings to accompany the design. Special emphasis on check writing stands and coffee bars create an inviting atmosphere to the customers, while providing functional storage to keep the branch as clean as the design.
