Glenview Trust | Louisville, Ky
The Glenview Trust Company is a highly regarded wealth management firm that wanted to establish a more prominent presence in suburban Louisville. Their new freestanding building is carefully carved into a drastic hillside amidst mature trees and an active creek. The client’s commitment to enduring client service shaped a design aesthetic that combines a rich material palette with traditional massing and careful detailing.
The stepping masonry detailing clearly highlights the limestone clad entrance tower. Stone and brick masonry expresses natural tones and an impression of permanence, while wood wall and ceiling features offer a material vibrancy that highlights the building’s client spaces. Inside, the primary circulation for the entire building is oriented to a grand staircase recessed into the forest-side facade. The company’s extensive art collection is carefully curated throughout the building, with collaboration spaces receiving featured works.
