AKBANK is AKBANK’s Netherlands Headquarters in the Rembrandt Tower in Amsterdam.

The key element for the design is the concrete core of the building. We focused on creating a sculptural furniture element around the core, transforming it into the “core object”. The design targets to activate the spaces around the core by using a generic order.

The project won several international design awards: best architects 10, German Design Award 2010, IF product design award 2010 and was shortlisted “new generation” Contractworld Award 2010.
