BBFL designed the ‘Kleinwort Benson’ in Singapore.
Description from the architects:
Kleinwort Benson is an independently owned private bank and leading provider of wealth management solutions to private individuals and fund administration services to corporate clients, operating from a network of offices across the UK and the Channel Islands. Rated as the top performing wealth manager in the Financial Times Private Client Wealth ManagementSurvey 2010 and winner of the Best Private Bank 2008.
The design direction for Kleinwort Benson was conceived as a clean looking design with strong lines and clearly defined spaces which would underline the strength and clarity of the company’s direction within the financial sector.Glass was extensively used in the customer platform area to maintain the co-relationship between adjacent spaces while also enhancing the clarity and open-ness of the office customer platform.
Understated elegance and a sense of occasion and gravity were the driving principles behind the overall look and feel as well as the material selection. This goes hand-in-hand with Kleinwort Benson’s identity and image as a respected, strong and established private banking and investment entity.
