Framingham, Lynn, and Tewksbury, MA
Maugel Architects was hired to design a branding image for new branch banks throughout the Metrowest area. The design collaborative resulted in a traditional New England vernacular form of pitched roofs, boxed gables, doric columns and durable materials, including brick and stone. The interior design features large open spaces with cathedral ceilings and “entertainment zones” for wireless activities, child play areas, and advertising displays of products and services. The prototype was designed to be flexible enough to readily adapt to various site conditions and neighborhood context. To date, three banch banks have been completed by the Metro Credit Union, Omni Properties, and Maugel Architects team.
