The current project aims to renovate the interior of the central branch of Expressbank - Varna, without changing the structure of the building, and no expansions or significant reconstructions are foreseen. As you know, the building was built in the 1980s for the needs of the BNB. In itself, the building is an architectural jewel and the external appearance is preserved categorically.
The designed area of the building consists of a main lobby and existing cash lounges on two levels, which are being renovated with a modern look and materials.
The project mainly covers a lobby and cash lounge on the 1st floor (elevation ±0.00) and a lobby and shopping lounge on the 2nd floor (elevation +3.90) with a total area of over 900 sq.m. The main existing flooring is of natural granite, which will be retained for the most part, and some of it will be replaced with carpet flooring on a podium.
The existing suspended ceiling will be replaced with a vinyl stretch ceiling.
It is planned to replace the building installations - HVAC, electrical installations and low-current installations, as well as replacing all lighting fixtures with new ones (LED).
The existing brass railings on the staircase and on the +3.90 elevation will be replaced with new ones made of bent glass with a "spider" fastening system.
Areas with soft furniture are set aside for waiting on the first and second floors, and an ATM is installed in the main lobby.
The existing decorative wall behind the staircase will be replaced with a new green wall of natural plants and drip irrigation.
All interior doors, the entrance doors of the central lobby, and the joinery of the exterior walls are being replaced.
It is planned to clean the existing clear polycarbonate dome and replace the fire escape hatch located on top of the dome.
