Strong colour adds audacity to a simple design.

SMEC Corporate Office Fit-out Project (2009) 154 Melbourne St, West End


Strong colour adds drama to what is otherwise a basic functional design. Needing acoustic dampening, black marmoleum inserts were flush mounted within the timber treads resulting in a exciting display of contrast against pale timber.

Stringer Construction: Commercial grade “White Satin” painted steel folded tread plate mono-stringers including landing support and column (MS2).

Treads: Pre-finished 64mm Blackbutt manufactured tread with rebated 2.5mm black Marmoleum inserts and 33mm Latham 322S “Sparkling Black” non-slip nosing strips.

Balustrade: 50mm SHS satin stainless stanchions with clasp patch fittings supporting 8mm clear toughened glass in-fill balustrade, and Continuous 38.1mm CHS stainless steel handrail. (C4).
