The Poalim Digital bank opened in 2017 at Mamila open street mall just by the old city of Jerusalem. The branch’s interior is an open space with ethereal lighting including a large scale screen that seamlessly curves along a glass cladded geometric wall creating a relaxed yet up to date atmosphere. Two interactive wall size screens are used to give information on banking products and features of the bank's mobile application. Large windows allow the interior to be highly visible from outside.
Among the capturing features of the branch are the custom furnishings made with Corian® Solid Surface. Two sculptural counters used by bankers and customers are dominant in the space. The furniture was combined with cutting edge technology of touch screens and applications to create the touch table and the kids’ corner. These furnishings were researched and developed in cooperation with experienced Israeli company Liony specialized in the fabrication of Corian® Solid Surface.
“Our studio researched, designed and developed Israel's first digital branch concept for the largest bank in Israel. The development involved a multitude of core stages that included flow of customers and defining the digital program along with the design of the digital space. We combined high end interior design and materials together with advanced technology to define the bank concept. The design chosen, in line with the bank's management and CEO, encourages clients to explore the many digital screens, information centers and experience personal service by bankers.” says SC architects.
