AKBANK in Amsterdam, Netherlands by dagli + atélier d’architecture

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Article source: dagli + atélier d’architecture

AKBANK is the new Netherlands Headquarters of the AKBANK in the Rembrandt Tower in Amsterdam.
The key element for the design is the concrete core of the building. The architects focused on creating a sculptural furniture element around the core, transforming it into the “core object”. The design targets to activate the spaces around the core by using a generic order. The “windmills”, a conception based on generic design, generate endless rotations around the core. The windmills are used on two levels, an upper and a lower level on which they rotate in opposite directions. The dimension of time, i.e. in this case the motion of the user causes with each new perspective unique impressions of space. The space becomes actual space. The repetition of the concept on all of the four walls and the short distances cause the intuitive will to explore the sculpture.

TherMitte by Nissen & Wentzlaff Architects BSA SIA AG

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Article source:  Nissen & Wentzlaff Architects BSA SIA AG

Competition, 2004 – first place: There are three structures: a four-storey residential building along the Hauptstrasse, with a walkway which reduces noise levels, a separate structure within this unit to house the banking premises, and a three-storey residential unit parallel to the first at the rear of the plot. This layout creates an internal courtyard, which can be accessed through two generous entrances from the two neighboring streets, which also serve as entrances to the residential units behind and to the services housed on the ground floor. The buildings are enclosed in wooden latticework, creating a filigreed and calm membrane between the internal and external spaces.

Al Hilal Bank Tower in Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi by Goettsch Partners

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: Goettsch Partners

The Al Hilal Bank Tower project was an exceptional design opportunity on a highly visible and distinguished site on Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi. Goettsch Partners developed a design solution that offered a unique form derived from a combination of site and contextual influences. The building varies in its massing and aesthetic in order to provide a unique and distinguished building for the site. The building derives its massing from a push and pull effect at the outer corners to achieve a unique form. The building’s skin changes at the “void” locations to accentuate the shifting aesthetic. The tower itself is a value driven class A office building composed of efficient lease spans and column free interior floor plates. The Al Hilal Bank Tower incorporates a distinguished design that will set the standard for the island.

Central Bank of Libya in Tripoli by Henning Larsen Architects

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Article source: Henning Larsen Architects

By using and re-interpreting specifics of the Libyan nature and culture, the new headquarter of the Central Bank of Libya will be a symbol of the new Libya, both for the local as well as the global community. We believe that the Central Bank of Libya must project an image of authority, solidity and security. At the same time, the Central Bank of Libya plays a crucial role in Libya’s economic growth, and as such, it should project a forward thinking, dynamic attitude, that grasps opportunities.

Although it is an office building, it can be read as a housing morphology due to its district and various constructional constraints. The upper shell obliged to have a hipped roof by the same constraints and it is hidden behind the parapet. Side shells of the building are fiber reinforced concrete panel and wood. Backyard, which is the existing structural contour, has a usage as outer gathering space, and as an endpoint of the fire-escape stairs that is attached to the building. The project is with cooperation Midek/Mingü A.Ş.

KBC BANK – MARTELARENPLEIN in Leuven, Belgium by Crepain Binst Architecture nv

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Article source: Crepain Binst Architecture nv

In order to achieve a beautifully bordered off station square, an area of 210 m² was conceded between the signal box and the underpass of the ring road in order to build a building of 6m x 35m x 16.5m high.

Since the footprint was too narrow to accommodate the programme of a fully-fledged bank office, we conceived a 10m overhang on the first floor. This design immediately radiates the architectural force of  the building, which has been built exclusively in clear and black enamelled glass with vertical uprights around the 2 highest floors. As a result, the internal functions are discretely shielded from the context.

Banking Branch in Leiria, Portugal by 2L Atelier Arquitectos

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Article source: 2L Atelier Arquitectos

With the purpose in re-qualifying an old building belonging to a derelict industrial area, this project proposes a new concept for a banking branch by presenting an innovative attendance desk design that leads to a new and fresh appearance, language and workplace blueprint, without losing the institution’s identity. This new image needs to be cohesive, simple in its form, identifiable from other institution’s branches, communicative and friendly.

DNB Bank Headquarters Main Building in Oslo, Norway by MVRDV

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Article source: MVRDV

The central building of DNB’s new bank headquarter cluster developed by Oslo S Utvikling (OSU) is completed. The MVRDV designed main building has 17 unique floors and a surface of 36,500m2. The pixelated volume based on small-scale working units adapts to the various influences of the urban context, combining an efficient and flexible internal organisation with a variety of specific communal spaces such as the main entrance lobby, a transparent trading floor, a sheltered public passage, respect for urban view lines and collective terraces overlooking the fjord to the south. The glass and brick exterior expresses both the transparency and stability of DNB as a modern financial institution.
