The Bank Bazaar Story

The Bank Bazaar building was built in around 1880. It was designed by architects, the Mansfield brothers, as a Commercial Banking Company branch. The style is Victorian Italianate and as with all the banks of this era it was built with an solid and imposing brick stucco front facade. From the back garden however the rear of the bank emerges as a gracious Victorian two storey house and stables and that’s because it was home to the bank manager and his family. In fact the bank was residence to many bank families up until the 1980’s.

CBA was eventually taken over by NAB and in 2008 they decided to close the branch and sell the building. The bank then underwent complete renovation and repurposing to become what it is today, a unique shopping and dining experience in the centre of historic Richmond.
