DZ Bank

Client Background

DZ Bank AG is the fourth largest bank in Germany by asset size and the central institution for more than 900 co-operative banks and their 12,000 branch offices. Within the Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken Co-operative financial network, which is one of Germany’s largest private sector financial service organisations, DZ Bank functions both as a central institution and as a corporate and investment bank.

Points of note

DZ Bank took 12,000 sq ft of office space within the 120,000 sq ft development at 150 Cheapside.  Their space, on the top floor, boasts full height windows which baths the space in natural light and allows magnificent view of one of London’s most iconic landmarks, St Pauls.

Maris created a scheme for DZ Bank, similar to that of their New York and Berlin offices, which showcased their vast art and sculpture collection and made the best use of the natural light and amazing views. The Boardroom was placed on the south-side of the space overlooking the stunning landscape.

The scope of works for this single floor plate included cellular offices for DZ Bank’s senior employees, meeting rooms, tea point and breakout area and Comms room with the remainder of the space open plan.

“We thank you for the outstanding design and build project, which you have delivered for our new premises at 150 Cheapside. The project aimed to achieve a design complimenting the iconic London landscape. The aesthetic and structural challenges in doing so were not only fully met but were exceeded. Equally, the office is now the ideal display space for the bank’s world renowned photographic collection. Ultimately the project is a reward for all staff and clients here at DZ BANK London Branch, bringing people closer together and thus enabling greater cooperation and communication.”
