Summit Credit Union’s newest branch is another example of the rethinking Summit has embraced when shedding the stuffy image of financial institutions and replacing it with open, transparent architecture. Summit’s goal was for a contemporary design with dynamic trapezoidal shapes and single sloped roof forms with sloping eaves, while the Village of Mount Horeb had design covenants that required traditional gable roof forms. The resulting design captures both these goals with a design covenant-compliant gable roof, but with a creative twist: The gable roof is trapezoidal in plan, creating a dynamic sloping eave.
