National Australia Bank (abbreviated NAB, branded nab) is one of the four largest financial institutions in Australia in terms of market capitalisation and customers. NAB is ranked 17th largest bank in the world measured by market capitalisation. It operates across 10 countries serving 8.3 million consumer and business banking customers and over 2.3 million wealth management customers.
The NAB Headquarters was designed by James Grose of Bligh Voller Nield Architects and opened in 2004. Located on the prestigious Victoria Harbour Precinct at Melbourne Docklands, this project is the commercial headquarters for the National Australia Bank and Global Wealth Management. The development consists of four separate but similar seven storey buildings over a common podium and car parking levels. Various elevated connecting links are provided between the buildings for circulation.
People either love or hate this building and I must say that I would rather have had something less like a Rubik's Cube sitting on that very prominent location. I just hope that the building has a highly functional office environment inside. Nevertheless it does give opportunity for some nice shots.
