Panamá Bank Tower by Herreros Arquitectos

By : Dennis Franklin | 2 Apr 2013 8:35 pm | Skyscrapers

This ambitious project was designed by Herreros Arquitectos in the city of Costadel Este, Panama and it provided a challenge for the team due to the condition of it featuring parking spaces above the ground and an unknown number of occupants with separated services. With such requirements the main concern of the designers was to provide the most flexible space they could and the aesthetic focus became secondary although the building provides an attractive façade and overall pattern.

The tower is enveloped with glass panels of different shades or transparencies that provide a better effect than a uniform pattern and the sustainability options also supports the use of the glass panes and shades.

The tower is organized as four independent buildings and the first one on the ground level contains the bank offices and the parking lot spreading over six floors. The next three parts vary in dimension and have terraces toward the sea and historic center of the city. These prisms have office spaces and include other leisure areas such as a restaurant, a gym and a meeting club.
