It's A Bank. Seriously.

When you got a lot of money and a vision, you could have something like this. But hey, if the service is shit then...*shrugs*..the prettiness doesn't mean anything.

This is first-ever, bank concept store for BNP Paribas in Paris, created by Paris-based architect Fabrice Ausset of Zoevox. This far-reaching concept bank is located in the historical building of 2, Place de l’Opéra. The space is chock-full of completely wacky un-bank features, yet it also has a nice retro touch — the honeycombed ceiling, lovely mirrors — that gives it the elegance and respectability that the building’s history warrants and the bank’s business must more.
