Complex Retail Kiosk for Financial Institution
This unconventional kiosk is designed to literally stop commuters in-their-tracks at Canada’s largest and most heavily trafficked rail hub. An entirely self-supporting fully functional bank branch, kubik’s design engineering and fabrication, in collaboration with talented partners, brought retail engagement and the brand position of “Ready for you” to life. The kiosk provides a comfortable refuge in an active and congested space, seamlessly intersecting with customers’ daily lives.
kubik was challenged to create a physical environment that could not be attached to any walls, ceilings or floors that would adhere to strict security and access controls necessary for a financial institution, provide seamless operations and workflow with other branches, and preserve the integrity of the immersive brand experience — all within a public venue with a challenging multiple stakeholder environment.

The kiosks features secure and free access Wi-Fi networks and charging stations and seating to provide a refuge from the hustle of the commuter hub. Financial operations are secured by hydraulic riser workstations embedded in counter.
