MKM was tasked with re-envisioning the banking experience for STAR Bank. The result is branch locations that offer clear and transparent services with innovative banking technologies. 

MKM architecture + design has had an ongoing relationship with STAR Bank beginning in the early 2000’s. In 2016, STAR Bank began an effort to re-envision the banking experience by redesigning branch locations. MKM was tasked with designing a prototype that was people focused and technology filled, providing a transparent and easy to navigate banking experience. This prototype pushed the envelope for what a bank could be in the modern world and how it could best serve its customers. Updates to existing and new locations implement modern banking technology. Throughout Indiana, branches offer a modern design aesthetic with pops of orange to compliment the bank’s branding. Each branch, however unique, are all designed with an open concept floor plan with large expanses of glass, providing natural light. New tech bars providing banking services and greeting stations provide an accessible bank experience to customers. STAR aims to provide clear and transparent banking practices and these design elements emphasize this commitment to customers. To date, our design has been implemented in approximately 40 branch locations.
