Innovative room concepts: The bank branch redefined

At a time when customer needs and work requirements are changing rapidly, banks need to make their premises flexible and future-proof. Creating an attractive, comfortable atmosphere for customers while providing dynamic working environments for employees is essential.

Banks today are more than just places for financial transactions; they are lively meeting places that offer welcoming service points and flexible consultation rooms. ‘New Work’ concepts integrate working from home with open workspaces, create retreat areas, and promote collaboration through team meeting rooms and coffee bars. The design of these spaces must seamlessly mediate between self-service areas and customer lobbies, with the ability to quickly switch between open and closed configurations.

Rely on Dorma Hüppe, your partner for innovative banking environments, to make your bank branches flexible, welcoming, and ready for the changing requirements of the modern financial world. Our intelligently designed movable wall systems not only help you create multifunctional areas, but also set architectural accents that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. These systems enable quick and uncomplicated adaptation of rooms – ideal for focussed work, discreet consultations and customer events.

Transparent glass elements create a bright and welcoming environment that combines comfort and openness, combined with opaque solutions that offer flexible privacy options.
