Merchants & Marine Bank, page 44

The corporate headquarters of Merchants & Marine Bank makes a strong statement about this Mississippi Gulf Coast Institution’s commitment to the community it serves. Constructed in a configuration that creates a City Park, M&M Bank creates a memorable town center. The historic design influence of the bank exterior and interior is a reflection of the cultural heritage of the Gulf Coast.

The building includes community spaces within the building and generous porches which overlook the City Park. Detailing of the building is strongly influenced by the architecture of New Orleans and historic buildings of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The organization of the building interior is also traditional in character and layout. A rotunda punctuates the primary north-south axis and connects the Jackson Avenue entrance with the main bank lobby. Classical columns and heavy mouldings are used throughout the building’s interior to reinforce the historical theme and to add interest to the main corridors of the building.

The building has been enthusiastically embraced by the community, and the bank has experienced significant growth since occupying the new corporate headquarters.
