With the intense competition to gain new customers within the financial services industry, First National Bank of Hartford decided to rejuvenate their image with this renovation and expansion project. This 17,837 sq. ft. renovation and 4,938 sq. ft. addition provides a bold and fresh look while preserving the bank's traditional elements and values. Warm wood tones and art glass are utilized throughout the bank, and the classic circular vault door is echoed in the floor and ceiling elements, which carry out a “way-finding” theme. The square block area of the site is being developed as a community plaza including landscaping and seating as well as a signature clock tower.
