Interior concept design - HSBC

image

GHD, having worked with HSBC from our Doha office, was engaged to create a fresh interior concept for HSBC's partly owned Vietnamese banking group TelcomBank.

Fixtures that had been purely functional in the past such as enquiries and teller counters were transformed into sculptural elements constructed from vibrant and durable finishes. The company’s limited colour palette was used to create focal points and assist with navigation around the bank. The core idea of the floor plan is to provide a 'landing strip' and a place to be greeted. From the entry space the client can be directed to a relaxed waiting space, at which point they can select to visit the retail banking space or the intimate consulting office. Translucent red divides are used within the retail banking to create a friendly yet confidential area for clients to discuss their needs.
