HSBC’s new flagship premier branch at 333 George Street is not what you’d expect from a bank branch. With vibrant purple hued meeting spaces and teller pods, the space represents a new era for HSBC in Australia and cements the company’s position as one of the country’s leading international banks.
Occupying two floors of the new iconic 333 George, the state of the art branch is a space which allows customers and staff to collaborate, communicate and connect more effectively. The staircase is an integral part of the fitout design, encouraging clients and staff alike to take the journey to the upper level. Wrapping around the lift shaft, this stair’s geometry, finishes and colours all meld and augment those of the surrounding fitout. A truly inspiring space, demonstrating where new age banking is heading.
