The headquarters of Bank Lubaczów located in the northern corner of Lubaczowski Market Square has a simple, neutral form that does not try to imitate traditional architecture of surrounding frontages.

Division into two variegated, intersecting blocks and withdrawal of the last storey in regard of the building line was intended to create a form that, despite its size, will not overwhelm the surroundings.

 

In the building, due to respect for exceptional in the city scale location, use of external walls as advertising media was almost completely abandoned. Wide glazing symbolizes openness and transparency of the institution and allow for free penetration of space and invite you inside in natural way.

 

In the transaction room, which is the heart of the bank, a backlit reproduction of archival map of von Miega with an area of several square meters was installed. The map shows Lubaczów and the surrounding area at the end of the 18th century and is one of the largest attraction of this kind in Poland.

The staircases are decorated with reproductions of archival postcards and banknotes.
