Suncorp Vero Building


Auckland CBD

Anchoring the soaring foyer of the Vero building in Auckland’s CBD is the stairway complete with solid wood treads. The focal point of the entry into this building makes a statement in contemporary design.

The stair cuts through four levels in the Suncorp building, which was no mean feat; the builders had to slice a stairwell through four concrete floors to accommodate it. The warmth of the American oak juxtaposes with the more utilitarian qualities of concrete and steel in the space, creating a relaxing and pleasant environment.

The timber treads are inlaid with a rubber grip pad on each step and two metal strips on the nose of the tread, in order to comply with health and safety requirements. American Oak is a dense and robust timber that is sustainably harvested, making it perfect for interior projects of a large scale.”
