A 2022 Structures award winner for Best Office Building (small category), this six-story, steel frame structure will serve as the new headquarters for one of California’s oldest, independent, family-owned and managed banks. This downtown Fremont revitalization project will house a main branch financial center, as well as executive and administrative staff. The building features all-glass frontage doors, a two-story grand hall, linear wood ceilings, and an angular roof trellis. A satellite dish on the roof will record ambient light and the sun’s position while working in conjunction with “fins” on the façade and electrochromatic glass to tint according to sunlight. Overaa provided extensive preconstruction services.
