The Architectural Studio
The new CBOB building will occupy the site of the existing Post Office building which is set to be demolished to accommodate the new building. The building design is intended to create momentum for urban renewal and enthusiasm to jumpstart the re-birth of its location. It was this consideration that drove the new CBOB design intended to raise excitement and expectations for possibilities as an instrument of positive change.
There are few cities in the world as fortunate as Nassau when it comes to climate. The ability to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor life blurs the line between public and private and allows for endless opportunities in the public realm. The building is oriented to embrace the encompassing views out and over the downtown areas towards the harbor and ocean beyond. A low energy glazing system is used to bring this incredible view in sharp focus to the building users.
