Orion Federal Credit Union Headquarters
The renovation of the former Wonder Bread bakery into Orion Federal Credit Union’s headquarters is underway in downtown Memphis’ Edge neighborhood. Vacant since 2013, the 63,000 square-foot existing structure will provide office space for more than 225 employees in an environment that encourages collaboration, supported by multiple size conference rooms and open collaborative meeting spaces. The three-story natural light filled lobby with a central staircase, create a space for chance encounters. Lounge type seating promotes informal meetings and collaboration. Central coffee and copy areas connect open offices areas on each floor. A new, period-appropriate, exterior facade design is made of salvaged bricks from buildings that were part of the existing factory. A modern addition of 7,100 square-feet on the roof provides additional space for a breakroom, pre-function pace, and rooftop deck.
