The client brought on 555 to incorporate levels of hospitality above and beyond a typical bank, creating a space that customers would want to visit and spend time in, engaging them in more personal ways than other banks.
The contemporary space embraces the building's high ceilings and sleek aesthetic. From warm walnut paired with matte black finishings, the custom detailing sets this bank apart from the rest. Antique and contemporary furnishings that feel like found pieces collected over the years give a relaxed feel in a space typical of doing serious business. Large, acoustic fixtures add a layer of texture to the space, while a band of digital displays allows for modern advertising, the wall street ticker, and the Cubs game to be on display throughout the bank. Surrounded by cookie-cutter options, Belmont Bank Wicker Park stands out from the rest in a neighborhood that stands out from the rest of Chicago.
