Cambridge, Minnesota is a community of 5,500 located on the banks of the Rum River in east central Minnesota. Just 45 miles north of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, this growing community is home to a variety of businesses including the Cambridge State Bank.
Cambridge State Bank, established in 1914, serves the community of Cambridge from two sites within the city. The Bank's new facility was built on the outskirts of town to serve the expanding community. The new 1˝ story brick building with distinguishing clerestory, prominent portico, stone accent and metal roof achieves the Owner's design objectives by integrating a progressive style with traditional materials.
Honed finish Northern Pink Mankato limestone is featured below the exterior windowsills and as column bases with rock-faced accent units throughout. The distinguishing Hartford Green standing seam metal roof and fascia canopy panels complements the overall design and adds scale to the building and contributes to the Bank's marketing of its services to the surrounding community.
The compact design of the building allows customers and staff to interact with both privacy and the enjoyment of an open and naturally lit space. The clerestory and south facing lobby windows not only serve the purpose of introducing daylight to the interior, but also enhance the space, giving both the interior and exterior a sense of openness and height. The site circulation posed numerous challenges to accommodate future development and to allow access to the adjacent restaurant. Cooperation between City Planners, Civil Engineers and HTG Architects lead to a successful outcome.
The interior of the space highlights the natural woodwork teller line as well as a custom receptionist/greeter station just inside the main door. Two-toned maple wood veneers, polished brass accents and simulated slate floor tile are surfaces featured in the main lobby and serve the purpose of re-establishing the traditional feel as seen in the Bank's main location. Offices, conference room and staff amenity areas surround the exterior of the space. Wallmounted indirect lighting fixtures in the offices and conference room provide a comfortable and user-friendly atmosphere.
The site on which Cambridge State Bank sits draws attention to the new building and accentuates the facility's strategic location in a growing part of town. Vehicular traffic is directed around the site and through the driveup with careful attention to pedestrian and parking traffic and access to an adjacent restaurant. Multiple entry and exit points direct traffic back out to the nearby highway and city streets.
