Fast-growing regional bank, LCNB required more office space for their expanding operations, and they wanted to maintain their Lebanon, Ohio headquarters presence within the downtown business community. In preparation, the bank secured a large parcel in a premier location in the heart of Lebanon’s central business district. As the first new building to appear in this historic downtown for many decades, LCNB selected BHDP due to its experience designing “new” buildings that respectfully complement historic urban settings.Read More
To prepare, BHDP design teams spent time in downtown Lebanon to capture the historic context of the surrounding buildings and to understand pedestrian traffic patterns. As a result, BHDP’s exterior design of LCNB’s new headquarters building payed homage to these historical details with marble accents and embossed spandrel panels; but they also integrated 21st century design details such as larger windows to permit more natural interior light and employed modern methods and materials to improve the thermal and waterproofing envelope of the building. The three-story building was carefully positioned to give back to the community a welcoming, park-like setting that includes cascading terraces, benches, plantings and lighting between the front of the building and the street; while allowing for employee parking at the rear of the site.
