Cumberland County Federal Credit Union, Yarmouth

CHA Architecture designed a new free-standing branch in compliance with Yarmouth’s recently enacted form-based code. This code proscribes the relationship between the building and the street, the massing, the number of windows and incorporates a lot of smart growth principles into the new development standards.

CHA Architecture worked with the town and the design team to strike a balance for the needs of the client and create a pleasant distinctive branch that is well positioned on the site. The building mass acts as a natural “billboard” for the credit union. The interior design materials and details incorporated a fresh new interpretation of the color palette used in some of the other branches.

The first floor features a banking hall, cash room, teller line, 4 offices, large conference room and support facilities. The second floor contains support space and an employee breakroom.
