Showing of
republic bank gulf view

This building houses Republic Bank’s retail banking facilities in Gulf View. The design uses simplicity in form to provide a background for the activities of the bank. The clear glass façade allows uninterrupted views of the daily rituals of the bank, while providing a canvas for a nighttime array of digital displays. Due to the necessity of the openness in the façade, special attention was paid to the design of the shading using deep overhangs and brise soleils.
