Core Architects Inc. have designed the flagship branch of the Dubai Bank, situated at the base of the World Trade Tower in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. A dramatic public facade of glass on the banking side of the building emphasizes openness while the back-of-house elevation is clad in brick, to convey solidity. A glass roof overhang cantilevers toward a public roundabout right to the street to maximize the impact of the entire building.
