Desjardins Mobile BranchQuébec, Canada
Designed by Ædifica, in collaboration with Loki Box Design, Desjardins’s first Mobile Branch offers all the financial services one would usually find at a caisse – only in a 12-metre wide bus. The small space is warm and functional but also features a confidential space for meetings with advisors. Several design elements were borrowed from the transportation sector including fabric-upholstered walls, comfortable sofas and practical rounded surfaces, and a durable exterior coating.
The design concept took into account other spatial considerations to ensure, for example, that the ATM did not take up too much space and would allow for a smooth flow of people. Housed in a used Novabus, the mobile branch is fitted with solar panels and batteries in an effort to improve energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint.
