The new Algeria Gulf Bank headquarters will create a strong signature landmark within the capital. A distinguishing architectural feature will be the way the building plays with light and shade, contrasting between the building’s transparent and opaque facade. SSH followed a sustainable design philosophy and incorporated energy savings and the use of environmental friendly materials.
