transformation and extension of bank office buiding
About
The project consists in the deep refurbishment and transformation of an existing bank office agency, old and extricated. The interior space is entirely remodeled. The public part of the program – desks and atm machines – is exposed to the street through large openings in the facade. A central void, as much as these openings, unveils the internal dynamic of the volume and allows a series of relationships with the near surroundings: this landscape both anticipate and extend the construction.
The cars are parked next to the agency and the visitor is directed to the entrance through a path alongside the waiting area.
The intervention is like a visible graft exhibiting the stitches. The idea to realize a unified object with a very simple and instantaneous image explains the use of a mesh-cladding. The screen of copper, perforated or not, plays with contrast with the structural concrete of the 70’s building. The texture of the facade gives changing reflections and a singular depth. The blurred contour of the building, the leaves of the trees, the layered series of macadam, stones and concrete implement an evident and banal landscape, strangely attractive.
