Centrix Bank

Centrix had been searching for a branch location to accommodate a drive-thru window, something which is difficult to find in the heart of downtown Portsmouth due to traffic concerns.

DeStefano Architects dramatically changed the exterior appearance of the existing building by adding two structures which highlighted the entry and covered drive-thru and then anchored the building to the site with the use of traditionally detailed columns. Other features were added such as arched gables, divided light windows and grey cobblestones for the front walkway. All together these details created a warm and welcoming facade in keeping with Portsmouth's historic character.
