The new headquarters for BLF Bank is a project that integrates into its design the spatial organization of a complex and specific plan for its function as a bank, but which can be opened to the public and let the new headquarters to be integrated within the social and cultural life of the Mar Mikhael district. The purpose of combining both public and private allocations to its operations lets us fundamentally organize the project through two clearly differentiated volumes: the tower and the plinth. Two features that create optimal balance between the different uses and its spatial requirements, synthesizing two essential objectives into the project, the bank’s significance and representativeness in the tower, and the building’s urban continuity and integration due to the plinth.

International competition. Finalist.
