Mason contractor: J&S Masonry
Architect: Baylis Architects
Owner: First Savings Bank Northwest
General contractor: Foushee & Associates
The Loan Center totals 21,000 square feet and is built around a steel-framed structure anchored with a two-story brick, block and precast concrete base, and a third story of champagne and chocolate metal panels and bronze glazing.
The masonry work was inspired by the existing structure built in 2004 using the same 8x4x16 autumn leaf structural brick for the historic reference, matching the original brick of the bank’s 1950 expansion. The dry-pressed manufacturing process allowed for the signature stack bond pattern. The castle white ground-face block also uses the stack bond and blends with the browns of the brick and the grays of the precast.
