With its luxurious, eco-chic environment, superb aesthetics and artisanal offerings, The Bank is an iconic destination. Once a functional bank in the 1970s, the 14,000 square meter site is now home to a magnificent 12-floor building of architectural elegance.
What has been described as ‘South Africa’s Living Gallery’ and the most valued address in Rosebank, The Bank also proudly showcases one of the largest collections of original South African artworks in one location; curated to surprise and delight patrons, while enhancing the captivating ambience of the mid-century modern architecturally designed building.
The Bank features more than 800 art pieces ranging from oils, watercolours and acrylic paintings on canvas to charcoal drawings, photographs and collages to create a Mecca of original local art. Many of the artworks were specially commissioned for the building and the collection on display include pieces by Nico Krijno, Gerda Scheepers and Anna Sango.
