Integris Credit Union based in Prince George, British Columbia, commissioned RATIO to renovate and expand an old commercial property into a modern and sophisticated new retail service branch. The approximately 9000 sqft building provides a transparent and connective plan that links the primary retail banking, insurance and wealth management services with professional support and community space. The main feature is a striking wood façade that announces the building to the busy thoroughfare of Highway 16 and Central Street. The new façade wraps around and into the new interior circular members area drawing visitors and light into the space. This feature is juxtaposed with slender vertical wood columns along the same elevation. Both design elements are reflective of the significant forestry and milling industry that Prince George members, businesses and Integris Credit Union are proud partners in.
