This modified competition design for the headquarters of a bank also includes six shops. A double-height hall with staircase behind a tall glass screen provides access to two large office zones. The managerial suite occupies a separate wing at the rear with glass partitions between it and the office zones. On the roof is a canteen with a partly roofed terrace. The concrete frame has a brick infill and an external cladding of yellow glazed tiles. In the mid 1990s the building was converted into luxury apartments, leaving the exterior largely intact.
