Beyond modern banking
KBank Private Banking Office
- Bangkok, Thailand
In a big move for the corporate banking sector, KBank asked dwp to design a very high-end, by invitation only, banking experience for their high net worth clients focused on customer service. A warm opulent welcome is created right from the lift lobby through to the concierge where statuesque French doors open into the comfortable and luxurious customer lounge. Although KBank’s branding colour is usually green, this is the only KBank product to allow a colour scheme of taupe, browns and creams which offer a lush, rich environment.
Named after locations relating to KBank history, separate, private meeting rooms are each designed with a specific, unique character. The designs were made to offer different experiences depending on the character of the customer. Although the design story for each room is expressed differently, each is a tale of about wealth with custom carpets, colours, patterns, textures and finishes. The office is located on a very high floor in a prime location so the layout was planned to maximise natural light throughout and allow the stunning views inside.
Beyond design, dwp pushed KBank – a traditional company – towards a modern office concept with a bar, a long countertop with power outlets for hot-desking and a café with a view. The result is an extremely functional and flexible office design.
