As the leading FinTech hub in Australia, Stone & Chalk is on a mission to rev-up FinTech in Australia with their new Sydney location. Part of a NSW state government initiative, the new Sydney home has room for up to 600 residents across secure labs, co-working meeting and collaboration spaces, cementing Stone & Chalk’s position as one of the largest FinTech hubs in the world.
This state of the art space, designed by Group GSA and built by Hunter Mason, is as unique as the company with moody monochrome wall paneling, dark timber stairs and quirky break rooms with ping pong and foosball tables on one floor to subway-like hallways, school-esque office spaces and mismatched vintage armchairs scattered on the floors above.
The Active Metal team were proud to be a part of this project, completing the unique staircase and balustrade, feature ceilings and intricate rope screen to finish the project in style.
