It is practically impossible to not feel at home in VP Bank’s new Central office in Hong Kong. Designed with a warm palette of neutral wood tones and plush furnishings with comfortable curved edges, the soothing space exudes a welcoming atmosphere that inspires one to sit back and imagine a world of possibilities that lie ahead.
This is exactly what the design team aimed to achieve from the get go.
In Case You Missed It: How VP Bank is Redefining The Private Banking Industry
“Banks normally give people the impression of a cold and impersonal space that can feel a bit distant. We want to undo this generic bank image, especially when VP Bank offers tailor-made services for their private clients,” says Otto Ng, design director and co-founder of LAAB Architects. “The design evokes a sense of human touch and celebrates local artisanship with a hand-painted texture wall as the backdrop of the lobby and hand-crafted solid wood tables.”
To successfully reinvent the concept of what a bank of today looks like and to elevate the banking experience, Ng and his team collaborated closely with Heline Lam, chief of staff Asia and managing director of VP Bank. VP Bank’s Hong Kong office, VP Wealth Management (Hong Kong) Ltd, is a wholly owned subsidiary of VP Bank Ltd in Liechtenstein and offers comprehensive wealth management solutions for intermediaries and private individuals.
