Collaborating with Darryl Sang of Sang Architects saw time invested together at the onset of the project design to explore available options and establish a best solution that fitted within the clients budget and brief.

Monarc precast wall panels lined the internal entrance and stair walls complimented by Monarc Stair Treads and Landings in Matching Pacific Oyster concrete.

The concrete selection consisted of 10mm graded aggregates ideal to the congested entrance and stair well area with close proximity viewing.

The walls were detailed with a full coverage of Monarc's predefined Grated 0508-08 decorative detailing with a vertical grain orientation to reduce dust settling in the pedestrian traffic flow.

Treads & Landings were Diamond honed to all faces with nosing strips adhered post install.
