Bremer Bank

Minot, North Dakota

This 7,500-square-foot new building for a Bremer Bank branch in Minot, North Dakota, combines the services from an existing downtown branch and a smaller branch across town. Wood and metal design elements throughout the building are inspired by trestle bridges found across North Dakota, giving the branch a unique look and feel. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows capture the local scenery.

The Minot location features glue laminated panels (GLT), glulam beams, and glulam column structure, in a form reminiscent of the trestle bridges of the region. The main structural elements are metal panels and high-performance glazing set outboard of the enclosure. The customer plaza opens to a double-height space to the south and a balcony to the north. The branch features three “partner tables” rather than a traditional bank teller line for improved service and stronger banker-customer relationships. There are also private offices, public and private meeting spaces, open workstations, a drive-thru lane and an outdoor terrace.

The new branch is located at a major intersection in the growing southwestern edge of Minot.
