“Circle” is selected as the design theme to imply the “shoe-shaped ingot” and “cornucopia” in traditional Chinese culture to point out the financial nature of the building, which are composed of three individual functional areas, the office building, the business center and the auxiliary facilities. The light-grey granite walls and the dark brown glass curtain walls embody the solidity of the bank.
