Webster Bank

Area: Approx. total 350,000 Square Feet

In 1996, Webster Bank (one of the largest Connecticut-based banks) retained Antinozzi Associates to provide interior design and planning services for the design of a technologically-based prototypical branch.

The first project was a retail-type branch located at the new Brass Mill Center Mall in Waterbury. This design was driven by the bank’s growth and expansion of services in internet/phone banking and ATM services. Along with this prototype, our firm standardized the bank branch interiors – furniture systems, color schemes, and layout – in addition to incorporating the latest trends in banking services.

In 1998 alone, Webster Bank greatly expanded their market location outside the Hartford and Waterbury regions and converted or renovated 35 branches within 18 months. Since 1998, we have renovated over 120 branch locations.

In 2002, we designed a prototype branch model that would brand a new image for Webster Bank. Since successfully opening the first prototype branches in Westchester County in 2003, 30 other branches have been built in New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Creatively designed and specific to high functionability, the design allows for local adaptability in diverse regions with varying facade restrictions from town to city.

Our services not only include architectural and interior design – new and renovated – but site feasibility studies, obtaining town approvals and permits, project team coordination, and construction administration.
