The project is located in the commercial district of Marrakesh. Situated to the north-west of the city's medieval core, this area was developed and built up during the early decades of this century. The irregularly shaped triangular site lies at the intersection of several streets. The overall architectural treatment emphasizes the bank's public character rather than the notion of a private residential block. Visual unity has been achieved by means of a cylindrical volume placed at one point of the triangle and rising through the structure's entire height. This angle treatment is further dramatized by a spiral beam which wraps around the corner of the building.
