Sberbank Branch System


In late 2013 Studio & Partners and our local partner ATP-TLP Moscow won the competition to design a new branch concept for 4.000 of Sberbanks branches in the Russian federation and the first 5 Pilot branches in the greater Moscow area.

Objective of the concept was to conceive a solution for the entire branch area from client space to back office - including logistic surfaces - that could be completed at a cost of 1.000,- € per sm. Another vital aspect in the development of this system of modular elements was the capability to remodel the client  area in 48 hours, to enable Sberbank to react to changing client needs and an evolving business model.

The different service modules that were designed were developed according to Sberbanks service activity profile and were inclusive of acoustics, light solutions and infrastructure to facilitate a swift exchange of the module. The service needs varied from enclosed, to counter, to open space scenarios, but also included modular solutions for cash handeling, Security zones and WC installations, all on a  standard surface area modul.

Project start was in February 2014, in November 2014 the project was stopped because the geopolitical situation, economical circumstances, exchange rate and political sanctions made reaching the project targets impossible.
