The AKBANK Creates Modern Shapes in a Basic Building

The AKBANK in Amsterdam is a bright and bold modern design recently constructed in Turkey that uses the hard lines of a diamond design.

The key element for the AKBANK design is the concrete core of the building. The architects focused on creating sculptural furniture elements around the core, transforming it into the "core object." The design is based on illuminated horizontal stripes or bands bordering the core walls.
