Model branch design for
Monte dei Paschi di Siena

Starting from a squared grid and the extrusions of several volumes, three different shapes are identified: a partition, a partition with an horizontal element and a pair of vertical partitions joined through an horizontal element. These different components acquire three different functions: a vertical garden in the Coffee Point, an artwork-exhibiting wall in the Art gallery and a private consultancy box in the Bank area.
