Founded in 1959 by Gene Hickey, his first project was a bank in Minnesota. Since then, HTG Architects has specialized in the design and planning of financial institutions.

With experience from thousands of financial institution projects, we bring an unmatched level of expertise to financial building design. EvoBank® (the evolving-bank process), our registered process of research and planning, is geared specifically toward the financial industry.

Our process is smooth, uncomplicated, well-informed and fun. We focus on your brand, your story and your culture. After all, that’s the real reason why your customers choose to do business with you. We are financial industry architects who listen first and provide feedback second. From Site Selection and Programming and Feasibility Studies through Architecture and Engineering and the final ribbon cutting, we will listen, serve, coordinate and execute. You have a business to run; our process takes the pressure off.

How We Do It

Successful builds don’t start when the foundation is poured — they start at the drawing board. 

InVision is our unique discovery process that uncovers, organizes and prioritizes all components of your project before shovels break ground. So when it comes time to build, you’re prepared.


With decades of experience in bank architecture, we confidently guide our clients through every step of the process. Whether you’re looking at constructing a new bank, remodeling an existing bank or a tenant improvement, HTG works to ensure your new bank project starts and ends on the right foot, developing a bank that exceeds expectations.

Credit Unions

In our experience, many of the same variables impacting banks also impact credit unions, but there are variations between how these two types of financial institutions operate. We’re well-versed in the key differences between the two, and we account for those distinctions in our project work.

Successful branches start here.

Project Highlights

Hiway Credit Union

As part of their recent growth initiative, Hiway Credit Union was seeking to construct their first new branch facility in Roseville, Minnesota. Hiway has a reputation for service and exists to provide its members with new opportunities rather than making a profit for a small group of shareholders. With that being the case, they understood the importance of partnering with a firm with strong ties to the community in order to account for the unique ways people do business there.
