bank on it...

this is a bank...


not a hotel lobby...


not a designer brand section of macy's or brown thomas...


not a vip section in la or miami's coolest nightclub...


not a members only dining lounge in any of the world's top members only clubs...


not a beautiful terrace with breathtaking views on the costa del whatsit...


not the most elegant yet phunky staircase in some uber chic hotel that every bride want her picture taken on...


not a wall street boardroom...


not the finest looking indoor vertical landscape installation for lenny kravitz...

nope - none of the above...

it the first ever bank concept store for bnp paribas, in paris...created by paris based architeect fabrice (well clearly he's not called chad bradley michaels the 3rd or pat joe mc atarsnick...) ausset of zoevox...

It's absolutely wonderful. If it were my bank, I'd be checking my interest rates and charges very carefully.

Love the modern chandeliers in the "not a hotel lobby..." picture. I would gladly be denied a loan in this place.
