First Financial Bank - Creekview Branch


First Financial Bank (formerly Irwin Union Bank) Creekview Branch was designed by Deborah Berke with Todd Williams serving as associate architect. Completed in 2006, the bank is located amid a jumbled collection of big box retail buildings, a multiplex theater, chain restaurants, and a car wash. The bank is a simple rectangular building of buff masonry. A translucent rectangular box floats over the building and provides a canopy for the four drive-through lanes. The "light box" is made of planks of structural channel glass. During the day natural light filters through the box into the banking hall below; at night the box glows from lights inside it -- transforming the structure into a sculptural object.
