BANK OF MAURITIUS
NEW HEADQUARTERS BUILDING
LOCATION:
Port Louis, Mauritius
COST:
N/A
SIZE:
200,000 sf
As winner of an international design competition for the national Bank of Mauritius, Loebl Schlossman and Hackl teamed with a local architect, to design a new tower and link an existing building to the tower. This national bank functions in a manner similar to the U.S. Treasury.


The tower features 200,000 SF (18,500 m2) of office and banking areas on 19 floors. The building has a multi-story banking hall, an internal garden, a fourth floor courtyard garden, enclosed parking spaces, as well as vault areas for the National Treasury and security areas in the lower levels. Bank departments are zoned vertically within the tower and are connected by internal atriums. The top two floors were designed for boardrooms and the new offices for the Bank Governor of Mauritius.

As a cornerstone of the island nation’s economic development, the bank’s design incorporates an extensive use of granite, metal and high performance glass to convey an image of permanence, sophistication, strength and stability.
