Modern and flooded with natural light, ANZ’s flagship branch at 20 Martin Place is a space that has been designed with efficiency, performance and sustainability in mind as well as aesthetic appeal. Recently re-built from the ground up, 20MP has been revitalised with new building systems and technologies to create a more efficient, flexible and inspiring office space.
Designed as a flagship city bank encompassing all new technologies, ANZ 20 Martin Place represents the ultimate retail banking experience. From the moment you step through the door, you know this isn’t your ordinary bank. A three storey generative art installation (aka digital greenwall), is driven by location based tags and social media interactions and provides a dynamic backdrop to this new-age banking concept while the high quality fitout ensures a vibrant and welcoming environment.
Set over three floors, the space is connected by an open, cantilevered stairway. The glass balustrades provide a sense of transparency and space and ensure the void is flooded with natural light. In addition to the staircase, Active Metal was engaged to undertake a variety of works on the project, ensuring every detail of this space is indeed equal to ANZ’s vision for the “pinnacle” of retail banking.
