Bahnhof Square is a unique urban design project. It is set in a very well defined historical context and offers the opportunity to incorporate elements of the “Traditional City” in a contemporary city. It is a mixed use development with a total bulk area of 195 000sqm that includes Retail (Street retail as well as a 25 000 sqm Shopping Mall), Offices and Residential. One of the main objectives is to enhance and strengthen the existing city rather than competing with it. Therefore it was very important in the conceptual phase to establish proper links. There is a strong emphasis on public space with parks, walkable streets and an integrated public transportation node.

Following extensive experience in design and fit out of ABSA retail branches, Osmond Lange was honoured to be involved in this unique and exciting project. In collaboration with Allen International, the brief called for a branch of the future. The idea was to push the boundaries of retail bank design, creating an interactive experience between the bank and the client.
The latest technology and materials were utilised to shape the users experience. Organic forms, encapsulating touch and ID recognition technology were created using Corian and stretch fabrics. The layout of the bank initiated a streamlined process to self-service banking and efficient ergonomics.
The branch of the future set the standards for branch design and led to the implementation of a new visual identity for the client. The branch has continued to be a huge success for both client and customer.
