A place of assembly: the new banking framework inspired by Ancient Greek oriented to the relationship with the client.
The agora banking concept was driven by the ancient Greek design idea of agora, a “place of assembly” where people met to do business and exchange ideas or simply spent time. This concept of gathering place is translated into the Air Bank branch landscape and fully interprets that overall feeling of an environment where feeling free but reassured at the same time.
The new environment encourages stepping out from traditional banking routine to a new banking framework which empathizes on the relationship with the client and not on the transaction but to support advisory, selling process and dialog. An open squared place with the free fruition of space has been designed with flexible, modular multilevel stair system offering clients to be seated in a comfortable, ease ambient and to be assisted in a peer to peer environment. In the center of the branch a multi functional area has been designed dedicated to community events and seminars. Furniture units can be moved around to serve specific needs.
