The new office building for Sächsische Aufbaubank (SAB), the Development Bank of the Free State of Saxony, nears completion. Employees begin to move in this month and the official opening will take place in September 2021.

ACME won the international competition in 2013. Our design revisits the typology of a bank as an imposing institution: the usual front of columns has been dissolved into a forest of supports. These new columns work hard - supporting, shading, sheltering the open space and geothermally cooling and heating the SAB building.
