WSECU emphasized to the design team the desire for an iconic building to create a statement within the University District and as a pledge to the community of their long-term commitment to the area. Further, it was key to create a project that would resonate with the neighborhood.
Brick was the perfect material choice on many levels. Clinker bricks, used for their unique shapes and colors, were used in a 30/70 general field blend with a Coal Creek-colored 12-inch Norman-style brick placed in a 1/3 running bond pattern to provide increased visual interest and tactility.
Window surrounds are done in a slightly contrasting Forest Blend.
