Access Credit Union
A new 5000+ square foot branch banking facility that features a customer lounge with dramatic ceiling and natural day lighting. Other amenities include walk up and drive up teller lines, security deposit boxes, private offices, and conference rooms. The exterior was designed to feature elements found in Access Credit Union’s other facilities.
This new full service banking facility features heavy timber construction with exposed wood trusses and the use of natural stone on both the interior and exterior. The facility houses operations for Citizens Bank with a teller line and drive up facility as well as executive offices and a loan department. High clerestory windows bring natural light into the public spaces including the main lobby.

City Federal Credit Union
After decades in downtown Amarillo, Texas serving their members, City Federal Credit Union made the bold decision to expand their accessibility by opening a new branch in southwest Amarillo. A high-volume lobby with a linear skylight the full length of it’s vaulted ceiling brings natural light into the interior of the facility. The lobby is non-traditional with technology stations and personal bankers available giving the customer various options to conduct their business. The building also features a large community room adjacent to an outdoor patio for trainings and other gatherings. Opening in spring 2021, this new branch will give City Federal Credit Union the ability to not only expand their customer base but better serve its customers by giving them more options when it comes to location.
First Capital Bank of Texas
This new approximately 20,000sf facility was designed to house all operations for the Amarillo location of First Capital Bank of Texas as well function as the main banking facility for their customers. The bank features a blend of natural materials including natural stone and wood and integrally colored concrete floors. Additional spaces include a Community room and outdoor patio for special events and a Board room with a second story view of Soncy Street and the latest in teleconferencing technology.
