Arundel Federal Savings Bank commissioned Architectural Design Works, Inc. (ADW) Headquartered in Towson, Maryland, to design their newly relocated headquarters. The Board decided to move operations to a more central Anne Arundel County location from Brooklyn to Glen Burnie.

The new two story headquarters incorporates an “extreme make-over” to the existing branch bank, and a second floor addition constructed over additional parking accommodates the relocated headquarters functions. The first floor branch features tray ceilings and colonial details, harkening back to their turn of the century beginnings, integrated with a high-tech infrastructure. Five new teller stations, two drive-up tellers and a drive up ATM were also added. The second floor headquarters features an officer wing, as well as teaming areas to encourage communication and synergies among departments. The exterior brick structure was refreshed with EIFS accents, new architectural grade roof shingles with copper accents and a stately cupola. The new two-story entrance veranda welcomes customers and serves as a focal point along busy Crain Highway. The “extreme makeover” was successfully executed, while keeping the branch in operation, by Mackenzie Contracting Company of Lutherville, Maryland.

The interior finishes were selected to represent the Bank’s historic colors of Federal blue and red. These branding colors are emphasized with painted accent walls, carpeting and specialized tiling, repeating the theme of quality and integrity throughout the bank. Sparkling Black Granite countertops greet the patrons at the Checking and Teller Stations, and fresh multicolored plaid carpeting gives the main entrance and hallways a contemporary feel. All finishes were selected to provide an elegant, yet comfortable and safe experience for the bank customers and the employees.

The site, although originally fully paved, incorporates a 20% reduction of impervious area and features landscaped islands that provide integrated water quality measures. Crain Highway modification accommodates new State Highway administration design requirements and added safety for bank customers. A new 6-inch water line was engineered to accommodate a new sprinkler system.
