Set across 7 levels, JB Hi-Fi’s Victorian head office is a modern space designed to drive office culture and cross departmental interactions. Each of the 7 levels are connected by a series of structural steel staircases, designed and constructed by the Active Metal team.
Surrounded by both glass and timber wall panels at each landing, glimpses of the stairs act are showcased at every level. Fitting seamlessly into the design of the building, the staircase features steel mesh balustrading and black finishes paired with timber to give an edgy, industrial feel.
