The postmodern architecture of King Southern Bank on Blankenbaker Parkway’s commerce corridor features classical revival motifs reminiscent of architectural elements that were historically used for traditional bank buildings to attract customers and represent financial stability. DAVID Construction was the designer/builder of this project, and the building design used for the new headquarters and Middletown branch reinforce King Southern Bank’s 95 year history, financial integrity and strong civic presence.
The facade features deep maple, red and brown bricks, limestone veneer quoins and keystone lintils, a set of two story multi-pane bay windows, and a cupola. The classical elements and rich tones are used on the interior, as well, with Doric columns and a rotunda inspired ceiling light fixture in the lobby, and dark cherry wood coffered ceilings, paneling, crown molding and window frames in the main floor and board room.
The overall design, color palette, finishes and textures are a fresh, contemporary image of an architectural form that both honors the history of our banking industry and King Southern Bank’s leadership role in our community’s financial institutions.
