Trustmark Bank, Gluckstadt

Trustmark Bank, Gluckstadt

For Trustmark’s new branch bank in Gluckstadt, CCD seamlessly blended historical context with modern functionality. The architectural design draws inspiration from the heritage of the German immigrants who founded Gluckstadt, resulting in a structure that pays homage to its roots while standing out as a beacon of modern banking.
The exterior of the bank is a simple yet striking form, featuring a steeply pitched roof reminiscent of traditional German architecture. This distinctive roofline commands attention from passing motorists, serving as a visual landmark in the growing community. Modern detailing adds a contemporary touch to the design. One of the key design elements is the primary entry, strategically positioned to face the bustling intersection. This ensures maximum visibility and accessibility, inviting customers into the bank. The roof is elevated at the glass-walled bank lobby to announce its presence.
Inside the bank, the design reflects Trustmark’s commitment to personalized banking experiences. The interior spaces are characterized by openness, with clear sightlines and easy access to staff. This design approach fosters a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, where customers feel valued and supported in their banking needs.
Overall, Trustmark’s new branch bank in Gluckstadt represents a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation. Through thoughtful architectural design and careful attention to detail, the bank not only honors the community’s history but also serves as a symbol of Trustmark’s commitment to modern banking practices and personalized customer service.

Alcorn State University Master Plan

Alcorn State University
Lorman, Natchez, and Vicksburg Campuses

CCD had the honor of updating Alcorn State University’s campus master plan, contributing to the preservation and enhancement of its rich cultural and historic significance. The collaborative process involved engaging various stakeholders, including administration, faculty, students, alumni, and community partners. Through forums, tours, surveys, and one-on-one meetings, CCD facilitated a comprehensive exploration and discovery process.


The resulting master plan is designed to be authentic, sustainable, vibrant, diverse, livable, and climate-smart. It envisions Alcorn as a walkable campus, encompassing academic, student life, recreation, housing, and open spaces. The plan strategically outlines locations for new buildings over 10- and 20-year periods, proposing changes to traffic patterns for both vehicles and pedestrians, optimizing space utilization, and enhancing wayfinding. CCD led a consultant team featuring renowned partners such as Page (planning), PUSH Studios (landscape), and Brailsford & Dunlavey (financial feasibility).
