A new glass banking pavilion for Hettingen signals an investment in the future of the community. The transparency of the facade invites bank clientele while quietly demonstrating state of the art security measures. The modern building contrasts markedly with the surrounding residential zone of traditional houses and gardens.
Hand-polished aluminum curtain walls suspend large Low-E glass panes measuring 3.7 meters in height. The roof edge conceals exterior sunshades. A modern architecture extends throughout the building interiors. A freestanding cabinet wall conceals the technical functions of the bank, and lends character to the customer service spaces. The building is supported by six cruciform columns. Illumination, cooling, and security monitoring devices are concealed in a plenum above a ceiling of aluminum louvers.
With this new building, the bank has re-established its presence in this rural town with a decidedly modern vision.
