Bansi - Taller de arquitectura



BANSI Bank branch. Proposing a banking institution to a green space, contained in a highly urban context dominated by the domestic scale. The institution, BANSI. A distinctly small regional bank with a new proposal based on Local “Tapatio” Banking institutional services. Having as heavy principles based on security, creativity and responsibility. The program is divided into 3 main areas: public area in which financial products are exposed, advertising and customer service. The safety area refers to the storage spaces of money and information, and finally, the administrative area which is appendix and serves the security area.

The proposal is built on the dualities the bank presents: safety and creativity, democracy and protection, a fictional transparency is achieved by a composition of volumes with an autonomous parallelepiped, and a solid insert. An object that appears as a container atopic self-referential where the continent is presented as a transparent membrane, flexible and immaterial (lightness).

This would interpret the public and democratic aspect of the institution. Where the content appears as a large solid block, homogeneous and confined, which represents the institutional and administrative heaviness that houses the hard part and programmatic proposal.

The bank piles up through the ground level, where a stony ground slope releases the object, resulting in a translucent box suspended emitting emotional feelings of privacy and security required by the bank.

The land earmarked for this branch is too large compared to the square meters required in the program (intentionally conditioning). This proposal aims to work in a strip of the same on the side least exposed to the context. The work focuses on the idea of ​​working the edges of the field to release the rest programmatically and give the option for the use of a community park, which originally already has it, or could also offer a extra division for future intentions.

This exercise posed a new type of bank a virtual bank. Where as most contemporary public spaces are reduced to simple self-service functions. The bank loses its status as ‘solid vault’ storage place to become a container and ephemeral digital operations where money ceases to be material since lost the need to be ‘real’ through intangible transactions.
