The approach takes its queue from the original concept of La Banque as a former old city bank, a centre for trade and commerce at the heart of the city. Metals and minerals have historically formed the core of Cyprus trade and are a inseparable from the island’s identity. These concealed natural treasures, hidden within the landscape, have inspired the design of suites at La Banque Hotel.

Massing

Drawing on the idea of layers of ore within a mass of rock, functional elements are introduced into the space as sculptural ‘insertions’, playing with mass and void to create a landscape for living.
