Hongkong and Shanghai Bank

Facts, informations and history of Hongkong and Shanghai Bank

Building located at Statue Square in the city's central district.

The tower rises to a height of 178.8 meters, with forty-seven floors above the basement, where the shopping center is located.

The building also has four underground levels. The elevations are made of a steel structure composed of gray aluminum modules. An additional effect is created by metallic panels with aluminum blinds shading large glazing surfaces. The building has a 52-meter high atrium. Capable of accommodating 3,500 people.

Is considered the most expensive building ever made. This is probably due in part to the high cost of land in Hong Kong. The 12-meter-high basement space seems to be particularly appreciated in a city where every piece of land is worth its weight in gold. Just like in the Willis Faber building, public space is connected with access to the bank and offices, while the inner part is clearly separated and understandable.

ogólnie niezły budynek choć mógł być trochę wyższy ponieważ teraz sprawia wrażenie troche takiego średniowiecznego proporcjonalnie jest troche za szeroki do wzrostu Ale za całokształt i pomysł daje 5
