O BEE CREDIT UNION
Tenino Branch | Tenino, WA
O Bee had established a small storefront presence in Tenino and their success resulted in the need for a larger facility to support their growing membership. O Bee’s vision was to showcase its roots as the original credit union of the employees of the Olympia Brewing Co. by incorporating elements of a modern-day “brewpub” into the branch space. A closed bank branch was available, and the Credit Union called the team at L. Keeley to focus and guide their vision to reality.
The interior looks and feels like an actual microbrewery and has attracted attention from around the country. Other features include an open concept, traditional style teller line, privacy glass, natural light, children’s financial literacy area, drive-up and more. Color changing LED lighting illuminating a barrel-vaulted ceiling in the lobby creates a beacon effect along the main street in Tenino at night.
