Project Description

Texas Dow Employees Credit Union

Designed to emulate the regional architectural vernacular of Texas farmlands, this custom 5,150-square-foot branch is conveniently located near a busy intersection. Exposure and visibility were paramount program requirements in the building design and placement on the site. RS&H incorporated Texas farmhouse exterior elements into the design, such as regionally cut white limestone, a covered canopy, one-and-a half-story central space with clerestory windows, and metal roof.

Credit union members enter the facility under a covered entry and vestibule bordered by large glass storefront windows with red brick columns. Members are immediately welcomed into a 22-foot-high lobby space with vaulted ceiling. The lobby was designed as a community space with distinct spatial zones for increased member interaction with the credit union. A central member information station, on-line banking center, café, den, and kid’s corner were incorporated in the design, all with generous views to the exterior.
