It’s not uncommon to encounter people who are surprised by our specialization. It has a tendency to catch people off guard. An architecture firm that specializes in bank design? How does that work? Well, over the last couple of decades, it’s worked extremely well. HTG Architects maintains an unmatched level of expertise in how the financial industry relates to design and architecture, having completed over 2,500 financial institution projects. Basically, we specialize in bank design so our clients don’t have to.

Knowing Our Niche

Because of our specialization, our clients are never tasked with educating us on how the financial industry works or how to design around the needs of banking customers. Larger concepts like this are things we know forward and backward.

The only area we expect our clients to bring their expertise is in the specifics of their bank:

  • What is their culture?
  • Who are their customers?
  • How do they serve them?
  • What differentiates you? 
  • What is your vision for the facility?

When clients focus on providing answers to questions like these, we remain focused on applying that vision to our expertise.

Guiding Our Clients

With decades of experience in bank architecture, we’re able to confidently guide our clients through every step of the process.

Because of our specialization, our approach to bank branch design goes beyond what’s needed and instead focuses on the best possible utilization. We focus on how a bank can be the most convenient for their customers and what the role a bank can serve within its community. It’s important to us to design each bank with a clear vision of how it will operate successfully.

Our Proven Process

As I mentioned above, when clients come to us wanting to start a bank project, they’re not expected to know everything there is to know about their financial industry. That’s our job. With EvoBank® (the evolving-bank process), we learn about much more than architecture by also focusing on emerging trends, technology and larger themes throughout the industry.

This way, when our clients bring their vision to us, we’re able to meld it with our experience and expertise during the InVision phase.

Design and Functionality

Bankers might be glad to hear we can design a space that is warm, friendly and inviting, but that’s not all. Because of our expertise, we can also create a modern and efficient space that accomplishes strategic goals like decreasing overall operating costs. A run-of-the-mill architecture firm without a specialization in the financial industry typically lacks the depth of knowledge required to make such impactful decisions during a bank’s design.

Choose HTG for Financial Industry Expertise

With experience from thousands of financial institution projects, we bring an unmatched level of expertise to financial building design. Whether you’re looking at constructing a new bank, remodeling an existing bank or a tenant improvement, HTG will combine what we know with your vision to develop a bank that exceeds expectations.
