Mizuho Bank Sydney

Sydney, Australia

Strongly influenced by its Japanese origins, Mizuho Bank’s new Sydney office celebrates the juxtaposition of traditional and contemporary design in a new workspace that is inspired by its brand strategy, “One Mizuho.” This philosophy served as a natural source of inspiration for the financial office design, underpinning a figurative flow of water carving out the architectural forms of the space in order to enhance communication among workers. Throughout the bank's new workspace, architectural elements and subtle visual cues — including the often angular yet consistently rounded geometry, the refined materiality, clean lines, transparency, and verticality — work together intentionally to create a “One Mizuho” focal point in the heart of the space. The result is an intuitive sense of “oneness,” creating a connection between its front-of-house and back-of-house areas and between its two floors.
