Northbrook Bank

JOB NAME:

Northbrook Bank

LOCATION:

Northbrook, IL

ARCHITECT:

Myefski Cook Architects, Inc.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

Developed for a site at the intersection of two major roads within the Village of Northbrook, the solution addressed the idea of creating an urban gateway to the downtown area. Many complex issues such as vehicular and pedestrian circulation, access from major arterial roads, and contextual appearance directed the final design. The building itself consists of two full stories, a full basement, and attic. The main level houses commercial banking services. The second floor houses the Loan Department, executive offices, and board meeting rooms. The lower level incorporates the main vault spaces, employee spaces, and auxiliary storage. The attic has a multitude of functions such as providing additional storage space, access to mechanical equipment, effectively screening that equipment and accommodates the elevator overrun. The building free-span is in response to the need for openness and flexibility of space for future growth.
