The new premises’ Reception area features well-crafted oak panelling, a uniquely textured 3D glazed terracotta feature wall, natural stone floors with soft area rugs and plush leather seating. Here the design thoughtfully reinterprets the bank’s global brand identity with updated nuances, striking a balance between innovation and adherence to the bank’s well-established pedigree.
Beyond this generous arrival zone, a set of well-appointed meeting suites offer clients a range of specially curated privileges and experiences. Each room is themed to reflect a particular lifestyle interest, such as music, literature, arts, tea-making and wine connoisseurship, creating a relaxing and personal ambience that caters to a wide variety of passions and tastes. Refined collectables have been carefully hand-picked and curated within each room. Artworks too play a pivotal role in enriching the user experience, and our designers worked closely with the bank’s Zurich-based art programmer on their placement.
For a more informal vibe, we’ve created a vibrant, fun and adaptable space – just beyond the Reception zone and behind a concealed door – based on a private club concept. This highly versatile space can be transformed from a daytime collaboration lounge into an evening entertainment venue with stunning views, programmable lighting, music and audiovisual displays. A further unexpected indulgence is discovered behind another concealed door: A private dining room and wine bar served by a full catering kitchen, and a 2,240 sf outdoor terrace overlooking Victoria Harbour.
