The Boland Bank concept branch was designed by Allen International. Designed and built in 1996 the branch which strove for transparency was ahead of its time. The bank was structured so that as one moved from the outside into the branch the client would see adverting strengthening the brand image and as the client exited the branch the client would see artwork collected by the bank. The design attempted to take the very traditional bank into the modern era. This bank was the first designed with an interactive waiting area.
