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
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:
