Umpqua Bank Spokane Main
Connecting to the city of Spokane and its historic downtown was a driving factor of the design. Care was taken to preserve elements of the existing building, which was once a prominent department store, such as the ornamented columns found throughout the space and a new facade hearkening back to the architecture of the period. The history of the city also informed the art and graphics inside the space, from a Spokane inspired pattern in the reading alcove, to a three dimensional mural in the community exchange room artfully evoking images of the World's Fair held there in 1974.
