WaFd Bank’s Federal Way branch was relocated from its longtime home to make way for a Sound Transit light rail line. The new branch is located in a busy retail area, just blocks away from the transit center. This 2,700 SF branch has open joist ceilings and generous storefront on two sides creating a bright open area for customers and employees. The banks interiors feature a warm modern palette and showcases the local scenery on a curved glass wall mural behind the teller line. Working with WaFd’s corporate standards and color palette, The Driftmier Architects provided interior design, permit drawings and oversaw construction for this new space.
