The design of the new Central Bank is based on establishing a landmark building on a landmark site. We imagine a design concept that is walkable, refreshing, and bolsters wayfinding and pedestrian avenues, while mitigating vehicular traffic congestion and meeting the needs of the Central Bank of The Bahamas for decades to come. Our vision establishes a public, performance, retail and institutional hub for both visitors and citizens of New Providence Island.
The design of the Central Bank creates an area of both prominence and, most importantly,security.The building setback for the proposed new bank is recessed, which enhances security through the placement of discrete yet effective barriers, bollards and curbing. The placement of the building allows for the development of formal approaches and entries, befitting of dignitaries and the public at large. The site is efficiently composed, and a connecting bridge will join the new and the existing banks.
