About This Project

The project is an expansion of an existing bank building, by adding two cubic buildings and a single storey central building.   One facade of both cubic buildings are set-back on the top two floors, in order to create an outdoor balcony as well as breaking down the heaviness of the cube.   The central building accomodates public programmes under a transforming canopy envelop, while connecting the three main buildings to the entrances, the carpark and an outdoor terrace that overlooks the city.
