Inspired by the cursive calligraphy script for the character “Jade”, the design of the building seeks to capture a similar rhythm of movement and tension.

Coupled with the metaphor of “handshake”, the project is a series of interlocking volumes intersecting at various angles that result in a dynamic composition. Like calligraphic strokes, the expressive colors of the insulated glass and metal panels further accentuate the design concept.

Terraces and balconies are then strategically located on the building volume while providing users with comfortable spaces with vantage points.

The overall result is an architectural manifestation of the trust between the bank and its customers, and the close cooperation between its various departments.
