Heritage Bank – Vancouver Center

  • LOCATION: Vancouver, WA
  • COMPLETED: 2012

OVERVIEW

In an effort to support their expanding Vancouver branches, Heritage Bank appointed LSW to design their administrative offices, located on the seventh floor of the Vancouver Center.  The 5,500 sq ft Class A office space is comprised of individual offices, meeting spaces, and limited open work areas.  Clients enter the space via a bright, daylit reception and waiting area with windows that overlook downtown Vancouver.  The adjacent conference room is separated by a glass sliding door.  During large events, the sliding doors are opened, creating one large gathering space.  Throughout the rest of the space, administrative offices are located on the perimeter of the building in order to take full advantage of natural lighting.

Based in Olympia, Washington, it was important to continue the Heritage Bank brand while tailoring it to reflect the Vancouver area.  This was achieved in part through digital prints on resin panels depicting iconic Vancouver and Portland scenes.  A color palette consistent with their branches inspired the interior finishes.  Custom wood paneling creates a focal wall in the conference room and enhances the warm and welcoming feeling that the bank projects.
