Central Bank Annexe - 2009


The concept is based on the historic value of the site with the bastion itself being the protagonist. The new building is conceived as a fragile shell encased within the robust St James Counterguard. Rather than being oriented around a central courtyard,  spaces are directed towards the inside of the exposed bastion face through the introduction of a fully glazed curtain wall. The concept was drawn up in collaboration with EMDP Ltd.
