UMB - Prairie Village Branch
This 4,500 S.F. Branch Bank is an extensive adaptation of the standard UMB prototype facility. Due to the Urban site constraints and expanded program, modifications were required to create a functional site. This challenge was turned into the draw of the facility by using angles and a mix of materials in order to create visual interest that is constantly changing depending on your position both outside and from within. The site was planned to have a strong pedestrian connection to the adjacent shopping district and was designed to be a green facility. Some of the Green elements include a Rain Garden on the North of the site that collects 90% of the roof/site runoff, and 87 year old reclaimed redwood used as rain screen siding. The facility is LEED Silver Certified.
