What I can see

The pre-existing building was renovated and today houses the bank’s administrative premises. The initially cubic building acquired asymmetric individual volumes with horizontal blue-green openings in the biggest part and a glass corner volume of the same colour in a recessed and non-orthogonal ground plan. It is the main body of the building, like a fruit’s mesocarp after we peel it. This glass volume is surrounded by a metal mesh with vertical, horizontal and intersecting lines. The discontinuity of the lines on the west side is not vague. When the perspectives of the openings are horizontal, there is symmetry on the horizontal axis and asymmetry on the vertical. The “mesh” is governed by the same rule. The use of selective asymmetry gives vitality, plasticity and depth to the building, without it being out of joint. On the east side, strict symmetry is followed with the exception of the mesh of the glass surface above the entrance, referring to the style of the original building. The blue-green colour of the glass surfaces is similar to the colour of the bank’s logo.

What I can't see

The total area of the building is 11,200 sqm and was designed by MRA Architects. In addition, it has an underground parking space for 71 vehicles.
