Shell House

Architectural Photography & Video Production

Client: Active Metal

Fitout: Shell House, 10 Carrington St, Sydney NSW 2000


The curved feature staircase elevates the visual depth and animation of the spaces; it’s the beating heart of Shell House.

Owned by the hospitality company The Point Group, designed by the renowned architect Woods Bagot, and constructed by Buildcorp, the Shell House restaurants and bars are housed under the 400-tonne iconic clock. Ascending the nine stories from the Shell House lift lobby on Wynyard Lane, the dining room and bar is an immersive space to capture the heritage and the grandeur of the 1930’s Art Deco period and its Italianate architecture.

Visually and physically connecting the dining room and terrace located at level 9, and the sky bar located at level 10 is the curved feature staircase created by Active Metal Pty Ltd. The staircase beautifully choreographs the journey for the visitors from the dining room to the rooftop, which provided with a bird’s eye view of the building’s iconic 400-tonne clock tower, a fresh perspective of panoramic Sydney skyline and the bustling Sydney streets views. The feature staircase is fabricated in a floor-to-floor height of 4260mm, with a curved half circle landing and completed with steel plate balustrade steel handrails painted in maroon.

It is an excellent architectural story that layers history and architecture, materiality, texture and colour…
