With the renovation of the commuter train station and associated commuter parking lot, the village took the first step in revitalizing its downtown core. Linking a drive thru facility to the commuter lot enabled the client to capitalize on the village's revitalization efforts and enhance this branches viability.

Arched metal panels were used to screen the roof top mechanical unit from view and act as awnings for walk up customers. The steel and glazed masonry units are further articulated to provide a sense of scale.
