Pro Credit Bank, Congo
A competition for a different looking Bank Building.
The Bank development is set on a prestigious corner plot in central Kinshasa. The site is quite tight at only slightly more than half an acre, and the design has been based on a formal parking grid in order to maximise the parking available at both basement and ground level.
A six meter parking grid has been established, which provides the main structure with an economical structural grid to support the eight floors above ground level. The building has been designed on the basis of an oval, which is also shaped vertically to create an organic shape that works extremely well on a corner plot building. The outstanding shape and design will become an iconic landmark in Kinshasa and will become a wonderful advert for the bank.
