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.

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.

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.

New Headquarter Of Bank Of Georgia Illuminated Translucent Concrete For Interior Design

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Article source: Architectural Group & Partners

Renovation of a building listed as national monument under preservation order.

The idea of light and nature showing through a building was the fundamental concept of redesigning the headquarter of Bank of Georgia, Tbilisi. Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright and Glenn Murcutt already had this idea in their minds as well as OMA, Office for Metropolitan Architecture Beijing, the architectural department of Rem Kolhaas architects in Rotterdam, for the high-class project “The Interlace” in Singapore. This idea was leading for renovation of the building in Georgia – since 2007 listed as national monument under preservation order – to be finished in spring 2011. A great and extraordinary office building was created: Incorporating nature in the whole interior design in forms of light. The architects of AG&P have realized a special highlight by using illuminated translucent concrete.
