|Description of Project: Banco di Caribe is a one-storey building with an underground vault in the center. A covered gallery which screens the sun from the interior surrounds the whole building. The gallery is enclosed by linking arches. The original design was intended to house a bank in the middle and have flanking units for individual shops. Subsequently, all the units have been taken over by the bank.|

|Repeat commission: When the management of the Banco di Caribe decided to built their subsidiary office in 1994 at the Jan Noorduynweg, the commission granted to AOB Architects was very clear: repeat the successful design of the head office, which by now has become a trademark of the Banco di Caribe, and duplicate as many details as possible, such as the striking arcade and the very popular counter. In these vibrant and ever changing times, not bad that a nearly twenty year old design was reborn again.|
