Client: ABSA Bank
Location: Clearwater Mall, Gauteng, South Africa
Following extensive experience in design and fit out of ABSA retail branches, Osmond Lange was honoured to be involved in this unique and exciting project. In collaboration with Allen International, the brief called for a branch of the future. The idea was to push the boundaries of retail bank design, creating an interactive experience between the bank and the client.
The latest technology and materials were utilised to shape the users experience. Organic forms, encapsulating touch and ID recognition technology were created using Corian and stretch fabrics. The layout of the bank initiated a streamlined process to self-service banking and efficient ergonomics.
The branch of the future set the standards for branch design and led to the implementation of a new visual identity for the client. The branch has continued to be a huge success for both client and customer.
