Rogue Credit purchased the former Scottish Rite Building and acreage on the east side of Medford, with the intention of making the existing building a training facility for the organization and eventually constructing a new freestanding branch on the site. Oregon Architecture was asked to convert a portion of the building into a functioning branch bank, as well as upgrade the building exterior, which was looking tired and worn.
Utilizing the material palette the Credit Union had been developing over the last few years, we completely remade the exterior of the building. We added windows, a drive through banking canopy, additional landscaping and mechanical equipment screening; and we reconfigured the building entrance canopy that created a danger to pedestrians and drivers alike. The make over has been so successful the Credit Union has shelved its plans for a new branch on the site.
Project Data: The branch is 1,800 square feet; the building is 11,000 square feet.
