Národná banka Slovenska

On 23 May 2002, after its ceremonial opening, the new headquarters building of Národná banka Slovenska was put to use. Thanks to its architecture, the building ranks among notable landmarks of the Slovak capital, Bratislava. The composition principle of the building is based on the contrast between the strong horizontal base structure and the emergent glazed tower block.

Construction on the basis of the design winning public tender – the design of architects Martin Kusý and Pavol Panák – was started in 1996. The contractor of the building was the H-V-Z consortium (Hydrostav, a.s. Bratislava, Váhostav, a.s. Žilina and ZIPP, s.r.o. Bratislava). Engineering services were undertaken by the engineering consortium (Keramoprojekt, a.s. Trenčin, Keraming Trenčín and Chempik, a.s. Bratislava).
