M1 Bank, 7 N. Bemiston
At this Clayton, Missouri location, M1 Bank wanted to continue what they had started with their branch in Des Peres. The team at Core10 Architecture helped them discover the authentic beauty that was hidden within this existing building. Visitors are greeted in the lobby with decorative fixtures and a glass-box conference room which seems to hover below the ceiling with its double cove light. Another key space for this project is the event venue, with a separate entrance and outdoor courtyard. Its wood ceiling is illuminated with tapelight mounted to the tops of trusses. Decorative pendants add sparkle while the workhorse lighting is an adjustable cylinder hidden in the trusswork. Track lighting for illuminating various room configurations is also concealed in the trusses. Simple lighting controls allow the end-users to intuitively adjust the lighting within the event space. We are looking forward to the next bank branch as M1 continues to grow.
