Design Philosophy

Ahead of its time in every nearly every decade, the cutting-edge design of the Bank Building & Equipment Corporation of America provided the country with its most innovative and appealing architecture in the 1950s and 60s. Similar to many of the nationally renowned bank designs of this period, new design by the Bank Building & Equipment Corporation incorporated a landscaped first floor plaza, space for additional retail outlets, the use of dynamic curtain walls for texture, heat absorbing louvers, and interior features of monumentality such as sweeping staircases, luxurious interior finishes, and great flexibility. However in many cases, Bank Building & Equipment Corporation projects were built before those that received more attention on a national level.
