BNP Paribas has launched its first concept 'laboratory' branch in Paris to test new technologies and a "new approach to banking relationships".
The bank carried out a survey to gain customer input before building the '2 Opéra' branch, at 2, Place de l'Opéra, 75002 Paris.
It includes a self-service area where people can carry out cash and cheque transactions from 7am to 11pm, seven days a week.
A 'banking boutique' area lets customers use iPads to browse products and services covering "nine essential lifestyle needs".
The financial information section offers access to economic and money information and lets users check on the main stock market prices via televised programmes in French or English.
A lounge enables both existing and prospective customers to surf the Internet via their own smartphone or with an iPad provided gratis while kids have a play area where they can draw on a tiled wall or watch TV.
