The 4,000-square-foot branch bank in Starkville, Mississippi represents The Citizens Bank’s first unit in the Golden Triangle Area. The Bank decided to make a strong statement about its commitment to sustainability with the project. Also, the notion of respecting the vernacular design traditions of the area strongly influenced the outcome of the project. The combination of sustainability within the context of a traditional design vocabulary offered interesting challenges to the design team and rendered a unique solution to the Bank’s project program.

Traditional design features include solid masonry walls, historic detailing and a clock tower that is similar to Starkville’s historic Cotton Mill Tower. The Citizens Bank building has become a landmark in Starkville, Mississippi and has established a strong presence in the Golden Triangle Community.

Sustainability features included:

  • Super insulation

  • High performance HVAC systems

  • Day-lighting

  • High output fluorescent lighting

  • Ideal solar orientation

  • Pervious paving
