Columbus United Federal Credit Union

About This Project

The Columbus United Federal Credit Union was designed to make a subtle comment of quality and stability for the credit union’s current and future members.

Located in a strip shopping center, it stands directly adjacent to a busy intersection and creates its own presence with pre-cast stone that anchors the building to the earth, a brick facade that enforces the credit union’s stability and a gable roof that ties the building to its residential context.

The plan encompasses 5,000 square feet and houses a teller area, offices, workspace and counting rooms.

The conference room doubles as a community room with a divider wall that separates it from the rest of the public space.

The lobby is open and naturally lit with clerestory windows.  The offices are aligned to provide viewing towards the teller area.
