REDWOOD CAPITAL BANK
When Humboldt State University's Natural History Museum relocated, Redwood Capital bank decided to remodel the building back into its original use as a bank. The project involved an extensive remodel of the interior of the building and an exterior facelift to the facade and surrounding landscape.
While certain banking elements were still left over from the original use, a number of new office spaces were added and all of the interior finishes were upgraded.
Since the bank didn't require the daylight protection that the old Museum needed, large windows were added back to the elevations.
Redwood Capital Bank maintains its ties to the Natural History Museum, which allows for a number of Museum displays to remain in the bank, including the existing hanging figure of a great white shark and the quetzacoatlus, a relative of the pterodactyl.
