DBS Bank Headquarters
Central, Hong Kong

Originally designed to serve as the main Hong Kong banking branch and offices for Kwong On Bank Limited, the main atrium of this 23-storey commercial development opens directly onto busy Queen’s Road in Central. The narrow site meant that public banking halls had to be split onto multiple levels.  WCWP sought to visually unite the three podium levels and one basement level through a series of dramatic circular openings and suspended escalators weaving their way up into the building.  The sense of openness encourages customers to move freely throughout the public areas of the bank.
