The module was designed to suit the bank?s ideal work group, permitting efficient, flexible organisation of offices and common areas.
A continuous internal path links the different floors, starting at the main entrance. The path, consisting of stairways and walkways, crosses common areas, lounges and reading rooms, provides access to open-air terraces and hanging gardens, and encourages staff to mingle with customers. The steel structure is covered with a brick skin. The outer walls of all common areas, including the pathway, are transparent to offer panoramic views of the city outside and the nearby fjord.
