A Much Needed Facelift

Members 1st Credit Union

As a building from the mid 20th century with an “electric” blue tile roof and a dated façade, it had definitely seen better days. Enter our client, who with a rapidly expanding business was looking to update this structure in a way that would still be noticed – but in a more positive way. The client had only one requirement – that the structure not be materially changed. Our solution ties together bold colored columns with canvas signage that also acts as a shade covering for the glass façade and drive –through bank teller. Add in a new metal roof, and the building appearance is transformed, all within a modest budget.
