How do you design a good interior in the town’s most impossible building, which is not an old shack, but a brand new office building? By ignoring it, of course. Set up tents inside it and pretend it is not there.


This is not even close to solving the problem, though. This interior is intended for a bank which would most definitely not approve of being ignored. Today’s banks not only require big vaults and long counters for cash transactions, but are also part of a wider network through which virtual money changes hands. Banks are no longer robbed with guns and masks, but sitting comfortably at the computer. Let’s see what a group of architects from all over Slovenia, assembled under the name Enota,  came up with.
