Pixel Collective was commissioned by Active Metal to capture architecture photography and video of their staircases installed in the marquee Campbell’s Stores development at Circular Quay, Sydney.
Idyllically located in The Rocks and surrounded by Sydney’s most famous icons, the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Campbell’s Store is a State Heritage listed landmark dating back to 1839, a rare example representing a mid-nineteenth century sandstone style warehouse.
As the jewel of the Rocks area, Campbell’s stores underwent a very significant recent restoration by the award-winning architect Johnson Pilton Walker (JPW) and delivered by renowned local builders Buildcorp. Comprising of three main components: remediation, renewal and adaptive re-use, the historic precinct has been returned to its former glory and is now a high quality dining precinct with arguably some of the best views in Sydney.
In what was a challenging built environment, with heritage restraints and building anomalies (nothing was square or level!), Active Metal Pty Ltd installed 6 flights of stairs, each with a solid steel plate balustrade.
