South Atlantic Bank at Carolina Forest
Myrtle Beach, SC
Formerly an HTC building, our clients requested this location reflect a modern “café style banking” concept unlike other more traditional locations. The concept must also reflect not only a forward thinking design but a sense of community as well. We began with removing three small office interior walls, adding glass store fronts (improving guest site lines) and adding functional office systems and community art. Acoustical light fixtures absorbs sound and provides artistic lighting. The design is defined by unexpected and sleek wood Fractal chairs and curvy communal seating areas. The use of large metal hombre column covers and white metal screens (mimicking stacks of coins) enrich the finishes. We designed a modern curved teller counter implementing the bank colors and logo. An abstract graphic of various blues and grays create a modern back drop to the teller window. An important part of the concept was to include an inviting coffee/snack bar encouraging customers to enjoy their banking experience.
