KS Bank is a community bank headquartered in Smithfield, NC. Their Selma location was originally constructed over 40 years ago and was in need of a massive overhaul, inside and out. Along with that, they were instituting the popular “teller pod” concept that allows for flexible staffing and greater customer service. KS Bank engaged Gontram Architecture and Ten Penny Construction to come up with a creative, contemporary design for their lobby and offices, and a new exterior “brand” for their community bank. In an effort to provide maximum community service for the local community, closing bank for this massive overhaul was not an option. Therefore, design and construction had to be phased so the bank could remain open.
