Redesign and Adaptive Reuse of Bank Building, Hatboro
Originally built in 1874, the newly re-purposed commercial building was designed for the administrative branch of the Hatboro Federal Savings Bank. OMNIA Architects’ goal was to create a new modern office building while still maintaining the historical character of the building. Our architectural and interior design team worked to blend the old with the new in this adaptive reuse. Re-using the hidden architectural treasures helped to maintain the historic architectural integrity. Highlights include the stone wall inside the front conference room and the 12 foot diameter wooden ring of trim that now adorns the second floor office ceiling area. The ring of trim previously decorated a demolished dome in the original 1920’s expansion. Everyone will continue to feel “safe” and secure as the interior strong metal frame of the original Safe door outlines the entrance to the kitchen/break/dining area.
Our creative team worked to maintain the vintage bank appearance along with the areas of today’s modern style to create a functional and creative work environment. Hatboro is our home town and we take pride in helping to preserve its heritage. Happy 300th Birthday Hatboro!
