PNC Bank, Harbor East

Baltimore, Maryland

Located within Baltimore’s hip, urban Harbor East neighborhood, this branch incorporates PNC Bank design objectives — recognizable, accessible, sustainable — within a redeveloped turn-of the-century furniture warehouse. Gensler’s design infused salvaged base building material with PNC’s standard kit-of-parts to create a welcoming banking environment that’s both contemporary and timeless. The removal of a floor during renovation yielded a wealth of century-old building material that contributed to the branch earning LEED®-CI Gold certification. PNC’s prototypical architectural and branding elements are reinterpreted and adapted to reflect the building’s historic character and the bank’s community connections.
