Bank of Mauritius

Project Description

Shortlisted competition entry for the new headquarters of the Bank of Mauritius, to be located on a prominent urban site. The cladding is made up of a grid of deep fins, which have the dual purpose of creating an elegant ‘cloak’ for the building as well as an efficient environmental shield against the local climatic conditions. 

Visible through the outer façade is the glazed inner skin of the building, featuring sky courts and sheltered gardens which serve to layer and articulate the building's elevations.
