Adopting a hybrid model of open and enclosed work-settings, the Minter Ellison office environment encourages flexibility, agility and collaboration – made all the more possible by the cascading internal staircase that seamlessly connects each of the 8 levels.
With finishes reflecting the quiet sophistication of the fitout, the BVN designed staircase, constructed by Active Metal, maximises the views to the harbour, Botanical Gardens and Opera House whilst also allowing for the fluid movement of clients and employees between floors. Fulfilling the goals of the client, the stairs have achieved improvements to the health and welfare of staff, and exponential value from collaboration and connectivity.
