European Central Bank in Frankfurt, Germany by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU

Monday, December 18th, 2017

Article source: COOP HIMMELB(L)AU 

The striking twin tower shapes the skyline of Frankfurt’s Ostend 

The design of the Viennese architectural studio Coop Himmelb(l)au for the new premises of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt combines the horizontal structure of the landmarked Grossmarkthalle with a twisted double tower, which rises to 185 meters. United by an entrance building, these two elements form an ensemble of special architectural significance. Featuring bridges, pathways and platforms, the glass atrium between the two highrises creates a vertical city. The semi-public and communicative functions are located in the former Grossmarkthalle. The exceptional atrium and visible steel support structure show that the ECB building belongs to an entirely new typology of skyscrapers.

Sberbank Headquarters in Moscow, Russia by IND Architects

Monday, November 13th, 2017

Article source: IND Architects 

‘The City of Opportunities’—that’s how we’ve named our project, one of the storeys of Sberbank’s new office. The concept was inspired by Moscow and its beautiful districts, atmosphere, residents, and dynamics that many capitals of world’s leading countries would envy. The parts of the office are connected by a ‘ring road.’ The office itself is divided into six ‘districts’ designed on the basis of landmark sights of a relevant Moscow district: Sokolniki Park, Arbat, Krymskaya Embankment, Gagarin Square, VDNH, and Red Square. In addition to special design, there are meeting rooms in every ‘district’ of the office named after famous Moscow landmarks, like ‘lisya Nora’ (Fox Lodge), ‘Skvorechnik’ (Nesting Box), ‘Attraktsyon’ (Amusement Park), and other sights of Sokolniki Park. Not only does the concept of the office deal with its meaningfulness and visual content, but it facilitates navigation, too. For instance, the ‘ring road’ helps one easily find their way around in this rather big (7,000 sqm, no less) office, quicker find a meeting room needed or reach coworkers.

New Capital One Bank & Café in Santa Monica, California by Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

Article source: Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

The new Capital One Bank at the corner of 4th & Broadway in downtown Santa Monica harmoniously blends a twist on a modern mid-century style design within the existing streetscape with a low-scale, two-story commercial building. The new 8,400 square foot, 2-story building echoes the character of a mid-century bank while creating a new ‘concept’ in banking. The café and bank combination will serve as a “third place” for the community – a place where people come to spend time outside of their home and work.

Sugamo Shinkin Bank is a credit union that strives to provide first-rate hospitality to its customers in accordance with its motto: “we take pleasure in serving happy customers”. Nakaaoki branch is the forth branch where Emmanuelle has been commissioned to handle the architectural and interior design. The common request for all branches is to create a bank where people wish to stay longer and naturally feel to come back again. Nakaaoki branch is located on the corner of major intersection, where there is a frequent movement of cars, busses, bicycles, and people. Taking this unique location as a characteristic, the façade is designed to be rhythmical that changes expression as people see from different angles.

Article source: v2com

Right at Paris’ doorstep, the Evergreen Campus hosts the Crédit Agricole’s head office. Multiple corporate entities share this space. The entire campus revolves around a central park that acts as its green lung.

The conception of Eole – a 67 000 m² building made in four years – preserves and upholds the site’s environmental vocation: buildings operate in accordance with the HQE norms (high environmental quality), new structures were built according to the BBC norms (low consumption buildings), soft energies usage (geothermic, solar and rain water is reused), 4 hectares of green spaces valorized.
