- Kansas City, MO
Housed within an existing parking garage in downtown Kansas City, the 13th and Grand Arvest Bank branch transforms an underutilized corner, and capitalizes on visibility in a high-traffic location near the lively Power & Light District.
The goal of this project was to provide a distinctive presence for Arvest Bank while keeping the building at a scale that complements an urban, walkable space. The blade wall, which wraps around the building, provides distinct portals that identify the bank itself within the greater context of the parking garage. Glass walls in the conference room and lobby offer street-level connectivity between the inner functions of the bank and pedestrians passing by.
