M1 Bank, Des Peres
Establishing the brand was one of the key elements for this landmark branch of a new bank, which opened in April 2019. Tiny 3000K LED cove lights enrich wood coffered ceilings. ELD worked with the manufacturer to factory-modify the large, square, statement-pendant to include integral LEDs. Small-aperture adjustable downlights punctuate seating and important tasks. Powerful linear fixtures backlight stone to create a warm gradient on the feature wall. While daylight plays an important role in perimeter offices and at the bank's main entrance, electric light brightens the rich, warm wood finishes to balance and bring radiance to the entire space. ELD worked closely with the team at Core10 Architecture to design this cohesive, welcoming financial institution.
