THE METAMORPHOSING BANK

The Metamorphosing Bank is situated at the monumental location at the highest point of Ascaya, Nevada. The site is developed to target high class clients with luxurious housing. One of the core function of the bank is to offer individual safe deposit for the prestiege members along with general banking for the public. The building aims to establish a secure environment through maximising the general public exposure rather than hiding the parts which demands a high security. The unique approach inspired by criminology regarding the relationship between the likely hood of a property being robbed against the unexpected exposure creates fundamental grounding for the macro concept of the building. Considering the building itself as a lock the clients are those whom proceeds in unlocking the building by altering its spatial layout. Constant metamorphosing of the spatial typology and the building becoming ever more noticeable by each unlocking sequence further secures the building from any security breach and penetration. Individual Security Deposits has been decreasing for the past 50 years as the public is now more aware and used to the digital environment where the notion of ‘secure’ mostly remains within computational language. However, such programme has been rising again as a business to target high income earning groups as those groups demand stable and secure environment to keep their valuable possessions safe. The spatial qualities and the formation of the space is carefully designed to meet the security level desired for such programme by adequately merging physical interaction and modern digital technology by dividing the security level clearance in to 3 distinctive levels from 1 to 3. The Metamorphosing Bank does not propose to become part of the convenient safe depository, rather seeks to establish an almost ‘ceremonial’ event to each clients through delicately choreographed unlocking sequence by becoming ever more intimate with the architecture and space through constant interaction and changing spatial qualities of the building.
