Marion, Ohio - Honoring the past, while designing the "bank of the future." This was the vision of First Citizens National Bank, in the design and layout of their new Marion, Ohio branch. FCNB tasked RCM Architects to do just that, and we're proud to have been their design partner for their last three projects.
Honoring the past: Marion, Ohio has a rich history in the State of Ohio, as both a political and industrial center. Marion is the birthplace of former United States President, Warren G. Harding, and home to his final resting place, the Harding Memorial. The Harding Tomb was designed as a "Greek Temple Structure", with a large rotunda made of white marble. These Grecian columns, along with the raised roof, were the inspiration for RCM's vision for this banking center. Tying into Marion's industrial history, is the use of Glen-Gery face bricks and pavers throughout the project. Glen-Gery has called Marion home since the mid-1980's, and the installed brick products were actually manufactured at their plant, just down the road.
Inside, you'll find what FCNB has tagged as the "bank of the future." Strategically placed walk-up teller station and desks give the teller a full view of the office for security, while completing customer transactions. Glass walls separate offices from each other for increased visibility throughout. A lounge area offers guests Wi-Fi and plug-in stations for their mobile devices. The conference room features a flat screen tv for larger meetings and presentations. Finally, drive-thru lanes offer an ATM, Night Deposit Drop, and two lanes for drive-up banking convenience.
First Citizens National Bank is celebrating the opening of their new Marion Branch at 125 Eastlawn Drive with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Open House, Monday, March 12th at 11:30 AM.
