Client: Widget Financial
(formerly Erie GE FCU)
Location: Pittsburg Ave, Erie, PA
Size: 3,667 s.f.
Narrative: Renovations were completed on this previous banking facility to create a more comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for the members of a local Federal Credit Union. Most of the interior of this former branch bank was replaced, transforming it into a progressive Credit Union branch office using an organic open floor plan, complete with individual office spaces as well as a relaxing sitting area. The interiors of this building sport a softer, more flowing look which is reinforced by the water feature that serves as the focal point of this design. Improvements to the building envelope and landscaping were also provided in order to correct water penetration problems.
