Banco Santander

The Banco Santander Building New York, NY

RBSD provided full service design for the headquarters of Banco Santander’s North American operations.  The 19-story tower sat on a 80′ x 100′ full-lot base at the lobby level, stepped back at the seventh, eleventh and fifteenth floors to form an elegant, graduated silhouette.  Situated in a highly visible midtown location, just off Park Avenue, the building is surrounded by icons of modern architecture including the Seagram Building, Lever House and a McKim, Mead & White building,  Great care was taken to develop a remarkable, modern companion for its distinguished neighbors.

Exterior materials include a blue-green reflective glass curtain wall with dark and light gray Cold-Spring, thermal-finished granite.  Granite and glass materials continue into the lobby and public area, tying the interior and exterior together.  The building features high-speed elevators, a world-class telecommunications system and data service network, state-of-the-art light and environmental control systems, a 91-seat auditorium, conference and boardroom meeting facilities, and full executive and operating support functions for the Bank’s operations.

RBSD also provided interior design services for the building and was responsible for the construction and fit-out.  Different floors in the building feature certain design styles and functions, from very traditional executive and management offices, to “high-tech” open-office environments.  The interior design also responded to and facilitated the display of an extensive art collection.
