Bank of America
Howard and Associates was hired to provide professional architectural services for the design of a new contemporary branch bank with drive through lanes. The bank is located on a hill at the corner of Memorial and Pennsylvania Avenue in NW Oklahoma City.
The bank interior has an open lobby and waiting area with a tall semicircular vaulted ceiling running the length of the space. Glass enclosed offices are on one side and the teller counters are the opposite side. ADA restrooms, conference, break, file, work and storage rooms, and vault safe room were included in the design.
The building exterior has a series of vaulted arches and columns below an overhanging roof. Large expanses of continuous glass are recessed at the exterior walls. A tall pitched metal roof over the main building is a major design feature. Tall glass walls at the entrance have wing wall forms on each side with large circular openings.
