A Modular Infill Solution Delivering a High-End Experience

When OakStar Bank engaged Paragon Fabrication, the primary project objective was to provide an infill solution in a strip center that would enable OakStar to transition pieces to their permanent facility or leverage in a future development. Paragon Fabrication delivered with a design-build solution that would have the location ready in a matter of months in the Prairie Fire area of Overland Park, Kansas, with an experience tailored to the bank's customers in the area.

Starting from a white box, Paragon Fabrication worked with the bank's architecture firm on the plans and designed and built the entire interior space, including wall partitions, furniture, filing systems, wall art and sculptures as well as audio and video solutions. The Paragon Fabrication team also designed with lighting and acoustics in mind, building out a space that created a stunning environment.

The OakStar Experience

Custom Fabrication to Bring a Modern Bank to Life

The OakStar brand was integrated throughout the interior design. The partitioned walls, used to divide the office space, were made of acrylic and had various heights, as a nod to Prairie Fire. The oakleaf, a key element of OakStar, was etched into the acrylic. For privacy, the partitioned walls were frosted and then finished with LED lights, making the space come to life.

The design team pushed the style through a custom-made light fixture, a modern ceiling sculpture and an oakleaf-framed TV monitor. Original furniture, including desks, filing systems and a conference table, were designed and built to optimize the space and the needs of the bank. To ensure the acoustics in the bank provided ease of conversation, custom ceiling clouds were installed with accent lighting.

Custom Solution for Long-Term Use

With a traditional infill contractor, OakStar Bank would have spent more on the infill and then had sunk costs when they moved to their permanent building. With Paragon Fabrication they were able to invest in custom-made pieces that delivered a stunning space and could easily be removed from the space and utilized in their next location. This same solution could be leveraged by any business that wants to optimize their infill investment by spending money on furniture and modular pieces that can be utilized in future spaces:

  • Restaurants
  • Nail & hair salons
  • Photographers
  • Office spaces with cubicles
  • Retail shopping
