What do premises of the world's biggest banks look like? Some of them are truly spectacular!

The leading banks manage our finances from their impressive headquarters, adhering to the newest standards of balanced construction, design and functionality. The most innovative and unique premises of banks from all over the world have been listed by the Emporis service.

One of the most interesting examples on the list is definitely the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong, one of the tallest office buildings in the world. Another intriguing example is also the Macquarie Bank Centre in Sydney. The building was constructed in accordance with the conditions of balanced construction and astonishes its onlookers with an original facade.

The Emporis service has also awarded the title of an example of spectacular architecture to the Bank of America Tower in New York. The investment cost around a billion dollars and is one of the most eye-catching skyscrapers in the city. The building is regarded as eco-friendly and energy efficient.

What's interesting, prestigious bank premises are also being constructed in countries in crisis, including Cyprus and Spain. Examples include the Co-Op Bank from Cyprus, which moved to new headquarters in 2009, or the BBVA bank, which is working on a new, extravagant building in Madrid.
