Islamic Bank Khartoum
Design Team | Coop Himmelb(l)au | 2014
The New Islmic Bank HQ & Cultural Centre in Khartoum combines the requirements of a modern Bank Head Quarter with a Cultural Centre in a unique way and forms an unprecedented landmark. The 70 meter high-rise profile is a solitary figure seen from all of the important views of Khartoum and its form and presence becomes a significant fixed point in the Khartoum skyline.
The new Bank tower combines environmental, economic and social aspects in one contemporary headquarter building. A sculptural and self-supporting concrete façade covers and connects through a central atrium two straight towers representing the Islamic Bank and the Culture Centre.
