The basis of this design is to promote green bank buildings, while the world maybe heading towards the notion of commercialization, the design features of this bank building is designed to be able to make a "green building"


This design features vivid colors incorporated into the design, making work less dull. Sometimes when a person goes to work, we want to be welcome with the sign of immediate excitement, thus the vivid colors to brighten up the person's day. Especially when they are all banking staff and the whole environment is so stressful that these colors do mean much to them.

Underfloor Air Systems
The building also features an underfloor air system where raised-access floors serves as plenums for distributing cooled air throughout the building. The potential benefits of underfloor air distribution include improved thermal comfort, improved indoor air quality, reduced energy use, and improved flexibility for office moves, thus making it a great alternative compared to air conditioners

Floor-to-Ceiling Insulating Glass
The building has floor-to-ceiling insulating glass to contain heat and maximize natural light, and an automatic daylight dimming system to save electricity. It also reduces thermal loss, lowering energy consumption and increasing transparency

  1. What is the purpose of having another bank building there?
    Am I right to say that the concept of the design is green building? Please summarise whatever you have said in the last 3 paragraphs.
