Back to the West Coast to continue our look at downtown Olympia architecture. According to the Olympia walking tour guide, this bank branch was designed by the architectural firm of Bennett & Johnson, who also designed another bank, a credit union and a car dealership in the area.
The original 1967 portion of the building is the two-story glass pavilion on the corner topped by a flat metal roof with a deep overhang. Other elements are faced in white brick, including the planters lining the sidewalk.
The three-story wings on either side are a late 70s addition and a few of the details such as the sloped glass skylight look clumsy. Still, the building is basically intact and foretells the corporate direction of commercial architecture in the 70s and 80s.
