Description: In 2002 economic conditions and changes to the banking industry regulations fostered an environment favorable for small banks to expand into "bigger" markets. Heartland Bank did just that. Heartland Bank is a small town bank that has moved to the city (the City of Leawood, Kansas to be specific). Piper-Wind Architects, Inc along with Kite Singleton, FAIA developed the design and construction documents for a one story bank building that is located on a pad site at Leawood Towne Center (an upscale suburban shopping and entertainment development in Leawood, Kansas); directly across the street from the recently completed Leawood City Hall. The 7,000 square foot bank building is constructed of brick and stucco on the exterior with stainless steel roofing and awnings. A center spine (distinguished by a raised roof) organizes the circulation of the building. A covered entry portico is located at the north end of the spine, the main lobby and tellers are located at center of the spine, and the four drive-up teller lanes are located at the south end of the spine. On the interior, office space is located on each side of the lobby.
