Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod – Hyannis, MA


Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod’s new 37,000 square-foot building at 25 Benjamin Franklin Way in Hyannis has undergone a complete transformation. With its resi-mercial design filled with plenty of natural light, comfortable seating, and biophilia, employees feel more at home returning to the office post-pandemic. The space masterfully blends traditional functionality of managing a bank operation with a modern appeal to support new modes of work.

Beyond dedicated workstations with new height-adjustable desks and high-density storage, people can now collaborate in open and flex spaces that encourage both formal and informal interactions. The neutral tones and nautical accents are a nod to the history of the Cape, which help bring certain elements from the outside in. By using demountable walls including Steelcase’s Lite Scale and Privacy Wall systems, the space has an open and airy concept while maintaining private, enclosed conference room and meeting spaces.

Designed to foster innovation, the environment allows employees to work from multiple locations through new technology. With all new Microsoft Teams rooms for video conferencing and shared audio, employees can easily connect with each other. The multi-purpose room supports a variety of uses, from training to presentations, and can be adjusted based on the activity at hand with flexible furniture. Employees can also reserve meeting rooms, to book the right workspace for the task at hand, which helps reduce unwanted foot traffic.

Red Thread also worked to design an elegant, custom boardroom table reflecting typical boat architecture that integrates power with flush-mounted technology connection boxes. We also created custom file surrounds that blended into each workstation to provide employees more access to storage.
