The challenges of uniting discretion and openness in one design were met by the Schroeder Architects Office in Bremen with their conception of the new pavilion for the Regional Savings Bank. Discrete areas of withdrawal for customers and employees contrast with the open design of the building to the street. The one storey building confidently blends into the surrounding environment of office buildings and local supply centre. It opens towards the northwest to a small forecourt with benches and trees inviting the visitor to dwell for awhile. The adjacent, generous glass façade on the north side clearly marks the main entrance towards the intersection. The night and self-service area with ATMs and bank statement printing machines are located in the vestibule behind it. Part of the entrance façade was equipped with OKAWOOD functional glass from OKALUX. The insulating glass with interlayers of Meranti wooden bars in the cavities of the panes shield customers at the ATMs from curious glances. At the same time, muted light enters the interior through the filigree, 10 millimeter thick horizontal bars.
