Leading edge technology and corporate branding characterize the Lehigh Valley flagship branch for Patriot Bank. The building program required the 5,000 SF building to function as a 24-hour automated financial access center together with a traditional branch bank and commercial retail loan center. The various services were separated into independent building functions with the Patriot Bank Access Financial Center anchoring the facility at its main entrance. Due to the varying schedules of the integral access center, traditional bank and loan center services, a complex arrangement of concealed
physical and electronic security systems were employed. The design concept was created as a prototype for all of the bank’s financial institutions to promote the Patriot Bank brand during their expansion into new markets.
