Full renovation of 6 floors of an existing office on Maktaba Street to provide temporary head office accommodation for NMB. At the ground floor IPA developed prototype teller and banking hall design. The brief from NMB was to do so in such a way that all materials were available locally and did not need to be imported. Designs for teller units were devised using locally available (and substantial) Eucalyptus wood, granite and painted glass. These tellers design have been used for NMB bank fit-outs throughout Tanzania.
