new work ::: BMCE Headquarters

Norman Foster (Foster + Partners) has recently completed a pair of banks in Rabat and Casablanca for the Moroccan company BMCE. The modular design is a simple concrete frame clad in zellige, a traditional ceramic tile with large glazed openings that are screened by 200mm deep steel shades. The bank is passively cooled via tubing that draws in fresh air, cools it subterraneanly before releasing it naturally inside the building.
