For their branch in Long Beach, LBS Financial selected a site in the heavily trafficked Marketplace retail center. The location had been a clothing store for the past 15 years and needed a design refresh – especially since a new, upscale retail center had just been completed across the street. The client wished for a branch design that would reflect the community’s chic vibes while also embodying the area’s marina and beach surroundings.
While the coastal design may project a carefree atmosphere, the process was anything but carefree. Significant hurdles due to the COVID-19 shutdown of the local municipal government and work-from-home discontinuities presented challenges at every corner. But the IBG team pumped energy, optimism and expertise into the process and provided the client with regular updates – mitigating stress while delivering a phenomenal outcome.
