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.

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.

Conceived during a sensitive period in the former colony’s history, the brief for the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Headquarters was a statement of confidence: to create ‘the best bank building in the world’. Through a process of questioning and challenging − including the involvement of a feng shui geomancer − the project addressed the nature of banking in Hong Kong and how it should be expressed in built form. In doing so it virtually reinvented the office tower.
