Moving out of its rural stronghold into the more competitive city market, Grabill Bank has chosen to push its image up several notches in order to make an impression in a new marketplace. This branch with its emphasis on brick and glass is making a statement for strength and stability, capitalizing on its perception as a safe and conservative place to do business.
Site planning was important to the development package for Grabill Bank in order to create not only a good structural design but also a pleasing setting for their facility. Landscaping is to be
optimized with the patio entrance and greenery strategically placed on the site. The open courtyard fronting the entrance is both beautiful and functional, enhancing security--always a major concern at a banking facility.
