The American West Bank Building, designed by Steven A. Meek Architects, uses classic masonry to complement the historic downtown Spokane environment.
Intricate brickwork creates a rich texture in the 56,000-square-foot building. The five-story building features a rounded tower on a diagonal orientation. A base of beige and cream colored brick anchors the foundation. The main body is constructed of red brick and features ribbon bay windows. Arched windows on the fourth level are accented with beige brick lentils. Above the fifth story, a stone cornice crowns the building, creating a legacy building for the owner and the city.
