The client required a design strategy for the provision of personal banking services in branches throughout the country. In response, Adjaye designed a series of freestanding components that could be combined according to need and circumstances. A column with an illuminated top – a beacon for Abbey services – housed the ATM unit. Other services, whether automated or personal, were associated with the Abbey Ribbon. Forming an open spiral, the raked top of this serviced wall provided various degrees of privacy, and was available in several versions.
