542 Riverside Drive – Fisher Architecture
When we realized we were quickly outgrowing our space in Pine Bluff and found this former BB&T Bank we knew it would be perfect. Read on to learn how Keith transformed the space.
Keith Fisher drafted a design for the renovation of what was once a BB&T Bank. He utilized the existing roof structure from the Banks drive-thru and turned it into a conference room while keeping the existing brick façade from the building as a finishing touch to the room. Fisher also re-oriented the entrance to the building in order to create a large open office environment for the studio staff. The new office gives each Architectural and Interior Design departments separate studio spaces.
“During construction we found multiple old windows in the attic from the original building construction with true divided lites and re-used them in several places throughout the building in order to facilitate additional light into the studio space,” added Fisher.
The floor finish is a luxury vinyl plank that cascades between a dark and light wood finish upon entrance and down the hallway. Another custom finishing touch was the addition of a gallery hall featuring all previous work to separate public and private space.
“As our company grows, so will the staff,” said Caitlin Fisher, CFO, Fisher Architecture LLC. “This building allows us to expand by another 4+ staff members, where at which point we then have the opportunity to add on to the existing footprint of the building.”
